Human Bodies Glow
Human bodies glow in the dark. The light we emit is 1,000 times weaker than what our eye can detect.
Scientists now reveal that the human body literally glows. Human bodies emit a visible light in extremely small quantities at levels that rise and fall with the day.
Past research has shown that the body emits visible light that is 1,000 times less intense than the levels to which our naked eyes can detect. In fact, almost all living creatures emit a very weak light. The thinking is that it’s a byproduct of biochemical reactions involving free radicals.
Invisible Form of Light
(This visible light differs from the infrared radiation — an invisible form of light — that comes from body heat.)
Researchers found human bodies glow at a rate that rose and fell during the day. Its lowest point is at 10 a.m. and its peak is at 4 p.m. Furthermore, it starts dropping gradually after that. These findings suggest that there is light emission linked to our body clocks. Most likely, it’s due to how our metabolic rhythms fluctuate over the course of the day.
Faces seem to glow more than the rest of the body. This might be because faces tan more than the rest of the body. Probably, because they get more exposure to the Sun. The pigment behind skin color, melanin, has fluorescent components that could enhance the body’s miniscule light production.
This faint light links with the body’s metabolism. This finding suggests that if cameras can spot the weak emissions, then this could help spot medical conditions. Stated by researcher Hitoshi Okamura, who is a circadian biologist at Kyoto University in Japan.
