All researchers know that whatever exists in nature is useful and considering man-made things, although there are useful aspect, its considered as an artificial one and its use bears side-effect, since its an artificial and non-natural thing, and all non-natural things bear environmental side-effect, including spiritual and psychological one, etc. One shall consider side-effects of artificial spectrum and lights in current life of human being, and use them with caution.
