Light Pollution and Health

It appears that humans rely on the Absence of Light at night for their health. In particular this seems to have played a part in the growing prevalence of Breast Cancer since the 1930s when people started being able to work graveyard shifts. A few days ago I read an article in the newspaper about a study which has found a link between the two.

Don't have the actual article but found this interesting link at about.com: http://environment.about.com/od/pollution/a/light_pollution.htm. Apparently breast tumors wake up during the day when there is light and "go to sleep" when there is not light. If someone works at night they are, well, they're keeping their boobs up past bedtime, lol.

It's very interesting how Astrology shows this just in relation to the placement of the Sun. At Midnight the Sun is at the bottom of the chart. By that time, in most locations, it has spent about two hours passing through the 4th house which is ruled by Cancer. Cancer is the sign that rules the Breasts. It is also ruled by the Moon. So, in essence, when we light the sky up as if the Sun were still out, the Moon can't rule her own domain.

It also makes sense that there is a rising health concern over sleep loss. The answer is just too simple. We don't need low energy light bulbs. We just need to switch them off.
