Santa Barbara, California, UNITED STATES

SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Nov. 11 (PRIMEZONE) -- Research being conducted at Science of Light Inc., in Santa Barbara, California is furthering the science of how seasonal decreases in natural sunlight affects human biochemistry.

Seasonal darkness is most commonly associated with Seasonal Affective Disorder or SAD, however, findings have emerged that prove that common ailments such as anxiety, eating disorders, sleeping disorders and chronic fatigue are directly related to decreases in natural sunlight.

"Our research is proving that many common forms of depression as well as other ailments can be easily treated with light therapy or Photo-therapy treatments," explained Ken Ceder, President of Science of Light, Inc. "Our products have helped thousands of people alleviate symptoms from dozens of common ailments and diseases such as depression, anxiety, eating and sleep disorders, plus immune deficiency disorders. Based on a March 2002 published study by the American Cancer Society, exposure to Solar UV radiation will help reduce the risk of twelve different types of cancer including breast, prostate and colon cancer. This new study published in the prominent Cancer journal directly contradicts official advice about sunlight."

The primary theory behind the company's research and development is that sunlight activates natural body chemistry and regulates circadian rhythms. Also, that sunlight is directly linked to metabolism, mood, sleep cycles, energy levels, hormone production, and the proper functioning of the body's immune system.

Products manufactured by Science of Light offer individuals an easy and affordable way to supplement natural sunlight with non-intrusive home devices and commercial lighting systems. The devices, when prescribed by a doctor, are covered by many health insurance plans.
