These wavelengths of light are “bioactive” in humans.  Below is a chart outlining the electromagnetic spectrum: Electromagnetic waves range from 0.0001 nanometers (gamma waves) all the way to over meters (radio waves). If you remember high school physics, when you pass white light through a prism it separates out the different colors based on their wavelengths (ROYGBIV). Only a tiny part of this spectrum (roughly 400nm to 700nm) is actually visible to the human eye. At the highest end of...
