Had me worried there...thought it was going to tell me that Led's were gonna make me go bald, or worse yet, shrivel up a certain body part.

My DW complains about the harshness of some LEDs in our remodeled S&B kitchen. While they are in the 3000k range, they are bright. Our 5er is equipped with them inside and those tend to be a bit harsh too but for sure they do a lot better job of lighting vs the fluorescent (dim candles!) lighting in the last RV. I really like them in the taillights too as you can actually see them now.

As far as going bald or shriveling certain areas - too late now to worry about things like that

Who doesn't sleep with curtains? My bedroom is pitch black on the brightest summer day and I don't stare into lights. Problem solved.

In the pictures shown in the article the street is far better lit with the LEDs. I dislike the blue color for lighting the house or RV but it is effective for lighting the street. I would like to see a study on accident rates with both kinds of lighting, maybe it offsets the sleep concerns and everyone can get mini blinds instead.
