New DVD - Exploring the Spectrum, John Nash Ott

In the 1970s, I reproduced and confirmed some of John Ott's pioneering experimental work on the negative effects of fluorescent lights on growing plants.  Years later, we corresponded and I helped him to produce and make publicly available a VHS version of the movie he always showed at his lectures - "Exploring the Spectrum: The Effects of Natural and Artificial Light on Living Organisms".   This same 80-minute video is now available as a DVD, remastered from Dr. Ott's original films with much better quality than the VHS version.  Below is the standard blurb about it, and it can be ordered online from Natural Energy Works:

Exploring the Spectrum - DVD
The Effects of Natural and Artificial Light
on Living Organisms
Filmed and Directed by John Nash Ott

An exciting video journey
through the world of time-lapse
photography by one of the founders
of the science of photobiology.

Do fluorescent lights cause cancer and childhood learning and behavior disorders? Can long-term exposure to low-level radiation as from TV sets, computers, fluorescent lights, and similar devices harm your health? Does living behind window glass and with glasses covering our eyes over years affect our health? Is natural sunlight and trace ultra-violet radiation really harmful to our health? Or is it necessary and beneficial? How do cells, plants and animals respond to constant exposure to different light color frequencies? Does mal-illumination and electrosmog create nervous agitation and a weakened immune system? These and similar questions were the subject of Dr. John Nash Ott's pioneering investigations in the field of photobiology, using the methods of time-lapse photography. In an era of increasing low-level electromagnetic pollution, where everyone is "wired up" to the internet 24/7, and even children have the latest cell phones, iPods, blueberrys and other Wi-Fi gizmos, with eyeballs glued to display screens, Dr. Ott shows we are paying the price with our health and biology. Our indoor lifestyles and chronic wearing of UV-blocking eye-glasses and contact lenses additionally has deprived us of biologically-necessary natural trace-ultraviolet and bluer frequencies of light, with an irrational and nearly superstitious fear of natural sunlight. Dr. Ott's time-lapse movies, reproduced here, show how plants and animals are deeply affected in movement, growth, form and sexual behavior, by these significant bioenergetic changes in our natural living conditions. This is a wonderful video showing Dr. Ott's original film sequences, including entire plants growing from a seed to fruit in less than a minute. A fascinating nature study for both adults and children!

Dr. Ott founded Ott Pictures, and the Environmental Health and Light Research Institute in Sarasota, Florida. Many of the time-lapse sequences in several of the late Walt Disney's films, such as Secrets of Life and Nature's Half Acre are the work of John Ott, as well as the time-lapse sequences in Paramount's production On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.
80 minutes, with humorous introduction.

Digitally remastered from Dr. Ott's original films with a much better quality than the old VHS version!
