Your ignorance regarding LEDs is staggering! You present your views with no scientific or engineering data to back it up. You've provided no links to any articles or research papers to back up your conclusions. You've presented your opinions, based on nothing but your own fear, as if it were established truth.
I collect flashlights. I stopped counting how many LED lights I have, when my collection of those lights grew to over 2 dozen. And believe me, flashlight collecting is more common than most folks think it is. My collection is okay..... But it pales in comparison to what other collectors have. Some of whom are electrical engineers! I seriously doubt that they would use LEDs, if your baseless claims were true.
On a more personal level, I patrol darkened office floors for a living. (If everyone slept when it was dark out, crooks would burglarize office buildings at night). What do I use 5 nights out of the week, every week? A black 2-C cell Maglite with their LED upgrade. This isn't some tiny LED key-chain model. My full-size LED flashlight is what I've used for nearly a year! ....... With zero negative effects to my eyes.
I don't know why you have such an irrational fear of LEDs. I don't know who told you they are dangerous. (Basically, I don't know who lied to you). But whoever it was, I know it sure as Hell wasn't an electrical engineer! This whole thing reminds me of when tomatoes first became plentiful in America. A couple of centuries ago, some idiot said they were poisonous..... And for a long time, otherwise intelligent people believed it.
But LEDs have already gotten into your home. You obviously have a computer. See that tiny light on your Hard drive? Wave hello to the LED on your comp. Don't worry, he's not going to get you.
