Upon request here is the link to the NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Journal of Clinical Laser Medicine & Surgery…. about medical study of light emiting diodes ( folow the links and download the pdf. THIS IS A MUST HAVE !
Abstract: Space light-emitting diode (LED) technology has provided medicine with a new tool capable of delivering light deep into tissues of the body, at wavelengths which are biologically optimal for cancer treatment and wound healing. This LED technology has already flown on Space Shuttle missions, and shows promise for wound healing applications of benefit to Space Station astronauts, and in Special Operations

Powerful light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have been shown to help heal wounds in laboratory animals and are now being tested on humans at the Medical College of Wisconsin. The LEDs were developed by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) to spur plant life in space.

Eye sensor offers instant blood glucose readings (November 2005) – Opto & Laser Europe –

„‚Making Light Work In Healthcare‘ was a biophotonics technology seminar at Photonex 2005. It was organized by the UK Photonics Cluster and the University of Strathclyde.“

Not brandnew, but very special… clothes made from light emitting fabric. The only thing I wonder about is the possible electromagnetic disturbance in the body field.

ScienceDirect – Cell Metabolism : Enlightening the adrenal gland

The secretion of glucocorticoid hormones is tightly regulated by the circadian clock and by negative humoral feedback loops, both acting on the hypothalamic-pituitary gland-adrenal axis. However, a new study (Ishida et al., 2005 [this issue of Cell Metabolism]) shows that light can influence the adrenal’s glucocorticoid output by a more direct pathway.

VeinViewer brings deep veins to light (November 2005) – News –

„The problem of finding and accessing a vein to draw blood from could soon be solved thanks to work at Luminetx.“



This is the link to the website of Professor Albrecht-Buehler I mentioned in my lecture (A. Wunsch) in Brussels. He shows, that even single cells are able to react to infrared light sources in an intelligent manner.
