How to protect your brain/circadian cycles/melatonin production from excessive exposure to toxic blue light from electronic devices.

Blue light from electronic devices is toxic to the brain. Should I become Amish?
Of course, I could become Amish and reduce my blue light exposure from electronic devices down to zero, but that would not be practical. I enjoy the convenience and increased productivity that these devices offer me. Here are 2 steps I am taking to protect my brain/circadian cycles/melatonin production from excessive exposure to blue light from electronic devices:
The Kindle reader with NO backlight has a battery life of 6 to 8 weeks with 1 charge! Why? Because it only uses battery power when you turn a page... It doesn't use any power when it displays a page, so there's no difference in battery usage between putting the device in Sleep mode and turning it off. They call this technology "eInk" and "ePaper". That's why you can read the Kindle Paperwhite outdoors in the sun, and that's why it's so much easier on the eyes and the brain, compared to the blue light produced by computers and iPads.
Here's what I do: I use the "Push to Kindle" Opera browser extension to send web pages to my Kindle for later reading. Sending a webpage to my kindle reader using the Opera push-to-kindle browser extension is a 1-click process. I also use Instapaper to save articles for later reading on my Kindle.
Finally, I also convert entire websites into PDF format using the free service at blog2book.pothi.com. I then email those PDFs to my Kindle reader with NO backlight. Takes two minutes. Once those PDFs are sitting on my Kindle eReader, I can read them at my leisure, outdoors away from any Wi-Fi, or at home using an orange lightbulb which illuminates the screen of the Kindle reader with NO backlight.
When it comes to energy production in the body, Dr. Jack Kruse explains that health all comes down to circadian rythms, electrons, water, DHA in the retina, and electromagnetic waves (light, from sunlight to blue light from computers) hitting the retina which is directly connected to the brain.
Using the Kindle reader with NO backlight instead of backlit LCD screens on iPads, tablets and laptops, together with using my blue blocker glasses, enables me to protect my brain's melatonin production and my circadian rythms by drastically reducing my exposure to toxic blue light.
What could be more fun than reading on my Kindle reader with NO backlight while sitting in the bath tub doing some awesome cold thermogenesis?
