So, I've been reading Dr. Peat's articles on sleep and light lately and they have me quite confused. I cannot, for the life of me, understand why he thinks we should seek to minimize melatonin levels. Melatonin has been repeatedly shown to inhibit lipid peroxidation, reduce estrogen, increase ATP production, act as a powerful antioxidant, and is inversely associated with cortisol levels. These all seem like things Peat would be in favor of. The only thing I could think of him disagreeing with, is the fact that it reduces body temperature. However, lower nighttime body temperatures are more conducive to deep sleep and high body temperatures are linked with insomnia. Any thought?
