      ​Lighting a New Path to Wellness and Scholastic Performance
"Mal-illumination is to light as malnutrition is to food"
                                                                                                                                                 — ​Dr. John Ott


​Science Of Light (SOL) is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation focused on research, development and implementation of 'biologically beneficial' light for enhancing wellness and scholastic performance in K-12 schools... free of cost. Additionally, SOL's state-of-the-art light system dramatically reduces energy consumption an average of 50% and reduces a school's carbon footprint as well. 

Science of Light is dedicated to the memory of phototherapy pioneer and time-lapse photography innovator, Dr. John Ott; the father of full-spectrum light technology. ​SOL is committed to being THE voice of "Mal-illumination" by increasing public awareness of this silent epidemic. Mal-illumination is a condition that Dr. John Ott likened to malnutrition. Like malnutrition, mal-illumination causes deficiencies by depriving us of the sun's vital 'energetic nutrient' wavelengths; e.g. UV light/vitamin D which enter the body through the eyes and skin. Sunlight striking the skin manufactures essential vitamin D and light entering the eyes regulates circadian rhythms that control appetite, energy, mood, sleep, libido and other body-mind functions.

Mal-illumination silently contributes to many adverse health and wellness issues; some quite serious. In fact, the full spectrum of sunlight energy, that our genes are programed to respond to, is essential for the development, growth, and maintenance of not only a healthy body, but critical for a healthy mind as well.

Mal-illumination is brought about by limiting our daily intake of full-spectrum daylight by primarily living an indoor existence and by shielding ourselves from the sun with such things as tinted windows, windshields, sunglasses and suntan lotions. Now more than ever in this Age of Information, millions of people are starving for the sun's life energy and unwittingly suffering from Mal-illumination... the silent epidemic.
