    How has LED lighting contributed the usage of light in healing?


    The saturated and concentrated light beams of specific wavelengths that LEDs can produce have opened up a new area of healing with LED light. Special LED lighting is used to heal wounds like skin ulcers from diabetes, serious burns and oral sores from radiation and chemotherapy. Certain wavelengths of LED light can also help to remove brain tumors. Infrared LEDs promote cell regeneration and help to healing lacerations.
