TKTV – Health Effects of Light – Dr. John Ott (1974) – Science | Documentary (Englisch)


This extremely important 1974 documentary on the health effects of full spectrum light and often feared the ultra violet frequencies has been almost lost to humanity as few have ever seen it. Dr. John Ott wished he had a way to have everyone learn this important information. So now, 40+ years later with the internet that he never really had, We are fulfilling his request to make it available to everyone. The quality of movie film recording was not great back then but it is pretty good considering when it was shot. Watch and learn.


An exciting video journey through the world of time-lapse photography by one of the founders of the science of photobiology, Dr. John Nash Ott. Do fluorescent lights cause cancer and childhood learning and behavior disorders? Can long-term exposure to low-level radiation as from TV sets, computers, fluorescent lights, and similar devices harm you? Does living behind window glass and with glasses covering our eyes over years affect our health? Is natural sunlight and trace ultra-violet radiation really harmful? Or is it necessary and beneficial? How do cells, plants and animals respond to constant exposure to different light color frequencies? These and similar questions were the subject of Dr. Ott’s pioneering investigations in the field of photobiology, using the methods of time-lapse photography. In an era of increasing low-level electromagnetic pollution, where everyone is „wired up“ to the internet 24/7, and even children have the latest cell phones, blueberrys and other Wi-Fi gizmos, sitting under fluorescent lights with eyeballs glued to display screens, Dr. Ott shows we are paying the price with our health and biology. Our indoor lifestyles and chronic wearing of UV-blocking eye-glasses and contact lenses additionally has deprived us of biologically-necessary natural trace-ultraviolet and bluer frequencies of light, with an irrational and nearly superstitious fear of natural sunlight. Dr. Ott’s time-lapse movies, reproduced here, show how plants and animals are deeply affected in movement, growth, form and sexual behavior, by these significant bioenergetic changes in our natural living conditions. Digitally remastered from Dr. Ott’s original 35mm films, this wonderful video shows Dr. Ott’s original film sequences from 30 years ago, including entire plants growing from a seed to fruit in less than a minute. A fascinating nature study for both adults and children!
