“Lights Out” by T.S. Wiley and Bent Formby exposes startling truths about the relationship between our modern lifestyle, sleep deprivation, and the rise of chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and depression. Drawing on research from the National Institutes of Health, the authors unveil the profound impact of artificial light on our biological rhythms and overall health.

Since the advent of the lightbulb, our natural sleep patterns have been disrupted, leading to a host of health issues. When we extend our waking hours into the night with artificial light, our bodies are deceived into believing it’s perpetually summer, triggering hormonal imbalances that disrupt appetite, fertility, and mental and physical well-being. This disruption leads to metabolic changes, including fat storage and slowed metabolism, as our bodies prepare for non-existent periods of hibernation and scarcity.

Through compelling research and insights, Wiley and Formby reveal the hidden dangers of sleep deprivation and shed light on the detrimental effects of carbohydrate-rich diets. They unveil government studies linking sleeplessness to a myriad of diseases, and challenge conventional dietary recommendations.

“Lights Out” serves as a crucial wake-up call, urging readers to recognize the profound impact of sleep on health and well-being. It’s a compelling exploration of the connection between our modern lifestyle and the epidemic of chronic diseases, offering insights that can transform our approach to health and vitality.
