Did you ever see a glowing in the dark printed book?

There is also an unhealthy tendency to use this lighting all the time so that the screen looks whiter.
I'd rather have a very compact but very good clip-on light in my pocket for emergencies (such as Ozeri Kandle II) than a contrast reducing permanent layer.
It's reflected light (similar to using a lamp), so why is it unhealthy? I using a clip on light regularly unhealthy (that's what I do)?
