How Does Solar-LED Lighting Affect Nutrition?

Kerosene Lamp

Lack of education affects farming which populations need for food, specifically because most impoverished populations are subsistence farming, which means they are eating the food they grow.  Increased reading time allows populations to learn better farming methods.

Daylight is limited for subsistence farmers who grow their own food.  This is a particular problem in tropical or semi-tropical areas, where much of the world’s impoverished nations lie.  In these regions there is often only 12 hours of daylight year round, meaning the time during the day is spent for farming, and time at night is used for extra tasks, which often include farm-related work.  By decreasing the price of available active work hours via solar-LED lights, subsistence farmers can be more productive and enjoy improved nutrition.

How Else Does Solar-LED Lighting Affect Health?

In most cases the de-facto lighting system is oil-based kerosene lamp derivatives.  This type of system causes indoor air pollution, which according to the World Health Organization (WHO) causes two-million excess deaths per year.  Switching to our Solar-LED lighting systems have been shown to completely replace the need and usage of kerosene lighting.
