On 3 February 2015 Reuters reported:
A new study is the latest to link blue-light emitting devices, like laptops, phones, and game consoles, to shorter sleep in adolescents. Using any device in the hour before bed was associated with a 13 to 52 per cent increase in the likelihood of needing more than 60 minutes to fall asleep, the researchers found. More than four daytime hours of screen time was associated with a similar increase in risk of 'sleep latency', or taking a long time to fall asleep. Screen time was also linked to an increased risk of a sleep deficit of at least two hours, meaning the kids said they needed two more hours of sleep than they were actually getting.
