The researchers’ study points out that LED lights penetrate the skin and cause changes in sub-surface tissue by changing the molecular makeup of a layer of water on elastin (the protein that provides elasticity in skin).

So in addition to being an energy-efficient form of lighting, we can now also refer to LED lights as a safe alternative to rat poison injections.
