    OK
    so what do you think of Dr. Wunsch's reasoning?

    I think I need to see it written down.

    Agree with iceaura. Give us your synopsis of the main point(s) and we can discuss. I'm not wasting 36 mins of my time to watch some video of unknown provenance.

    If what you write is interesting enough we may even feel motivated to watch bits of the video - if it not too long-winded.

    Hmm...let's do the math: 93k views...only 23 comments..and all positive.

    That's a good sign of woo.

    I watched a few minutes of it. Sounds like pure woo to me. Some German guy is throwing out a bunch of advanced biology terms that the average person couldn't understand, but what I gathered from it, he's basically saying that light in 500-700 nm range (the near infrared) is responsible for creating a large part of the body's ATP. Since apparently LED lights don't emit this frequency range of light, we won't produce the energy we need. He also goes on to say that near infrared radiation from light bulbs contribute to our body heat. I'm pretty sure that's woo in it's refined, purest form.

    ETA:

    if you don't want to watch the video, you can read his claims here:

    Thanks for ferreting this out. Yes, he's a crank all right. It's quite funny: he seems to think the lack of near IR emission of LEDs is injurious to health, ignoring the fact that for hundreds of thousands of years before Thomas Edison there was practically no artificial light at all - just a few candles or the odd fire.

    Toodle-oo, I'm a teapot.
