EP 049: Nutritional Light Technology with Ken Ceder The Quantum Biology Collective Podcast

    • Health & Fitness

Can light function as a form of nutrition for our bodies? Join Meredith Oke and Ken Ceder, a seasoned engineer specializing in healthy light solutions on this episode of The Quantum Biology Collective. With over three decades of experience, Ken illuminates the topic of malillumination, drawing parallels between light and essential nutrients, and discussing how our indoor lifestyles may be leaving us light-deficient.
Ken brings to light the pioneering work of John Ott in the realm of full spectrum light technology. He recounts Ott’s serendipitous findings on the influence of light quality on plant growth, which led to the creation of the first full spectrum light tube—an incredible advancement for simulating the benefits of natural sunlight indoors.
So what are the negative repercussions of unhealthy lighting? Ken argues that the kind of light we're exposed to can have disruptive effects on circadian rhythms and metabolism impacting sleep and weight management, and even mood imbalances.
Wrapping up, Ken introduces his own innovative light product designed to combat the challenges of spending too much time indoors. His solution blends LED efficiency with a composition of light that mirrors the natural spectrum, including traces of ultraviolet and near-infrared light, aiming to bring a slice of the sun's benefits to our indoor spaces.
Tune in for an enlightening discussion that sheds light on how the right illumination can lead to a healthier life. This episode is an essential listen for anyone looking to enhance their well-being through conscious light choices.
 
Quotes:
"Malillumination is suggesting that first and foremost, light is in fact a nutrient, the same as food or basically similar to food." (03:14 | Ken Ceder)
“I don't think there's anything that any of your viewers could possibly do, no matter if they're in great health, or unfortunately, if they're in poor health, if they want to find the simplest, least expensive trick, step out in the morning sun.” (27:18 | Ken Ceder) 
"Light is visible radiation. And so what it's doing for you or what it's giving you is energy." (33:07 | Ken Ceder)
“Metabolism, the fire that keeps you going, the fire of your biology is metabolism. It is 100%, 100% based on or dependent on light. So light in the morning, it ignites your metabolism.” (36:12 | Ken Ceder)
