E-books ‘damage sleep and health,’ doctors warn…

…Cries a headline in the BBC news today quoting a Harvard Medical School report – but it’s very misleading. The TV news repeatedly referred to e-book readers, when what they really meant was tablets used as e-book readers. Dedicated e-book readers like Kindles (as opposed to the Fire tablets) are no worse than print books and aren’t what this article is talking about.

(Do people really get paid to work out that staring at a lit computer screen at bedtime can disrupt your sleep? Apparently these amazing revelations are based on a study of twelve people.)


And it doesn’t stop there. Reading e-books at night can actually alter the dimensions of your eyes, according to a survey of one person sponsored by Photoshop.
