I quite often wake up in the middle of the night to read and switch the light on,or if on my own, often fall asleep with the light on.
I recently saw a study, Israeli,I think, suggesting that this is terribly dangerous and that even switching on the light if you are going to the bathroom in the middle of the night could be dangerous and increase your likelihood of getting cancer(?!)
I can sleep quite happily with the light on and find it comforting and wake up rested -is there really a problem?
