Spending two or three hours playing outdoors each day can reduce a child’s chance of becoming short-sighted, a research showsIt challenges (挑戰) the belief that short- sightedness is caused by computer use, watching TV or reading in weak light

The Australian government researchers believe that sunlight is good for people’s eyes They compared the vision(視力)and habits of 100 seven-year-old children in Singapore and AustraliaIn all, 30% of the Singaporean children were short-sighted--this rate(比率)was ten times higher than Australian children

Both groups spent a similar amount of time reading, watching television and playing computer gamesHowever, the Australian children spent an average(平均)of two hours a day outdoors—90 minutes more than the Singaporean children

Professor(教授)Ian Morgan, from the Australian Research Council’s Vision Centre, said, “Humans are naturally long-sighted, but when people begin to go to school and spend little or no time outdoors, the number of short-sighted people gets largerWe’re also seeing more and more short-sighted children in cities all around the world—and the main reason may be that city children spend less time outdoors

Daylight can be hundreds of times brighter than indoor lightBut why does playing outside prevent us from becoming short-sighted? Scientists believe that natural light has a special chemical(化學物質)which stops the eyeball from growing out of shape and prevents people becoming short-sighted

So be outdoorsIt doesn’t matter if that time is spent having a picnic or playing sports

1How much time did the Singaporean children spend outdoors on average every day in the research?

A 2 hours          B 90 minutes       C 1 hour             D 30 minutes

2What is the fifth paragraph mainly about?

A Why people become short-sighted

B Why natural light has a special chemical

C Why playing outside is good for one’s eyesight

D Why daylight is much brighter than indoor light

3Which of the following is true according to the passage?

A People will all become short-sighted after they begin to go to school

B Playing outdoors for 2 or 3 hours every day can help protect your eyesight

C Children in Australia are more likely to get short-sighted than those in Singapore

D If you spend two or three hours playing outside each day, you won’t get short-sighted

In most situations, light helps us seeBut nowadays humans are using too much of it so that it is in fact a kind of pollution

When it comes to looking at the night sky, too much light makes it difficult for us to watch some of life’s most wonderful sights: stars, planets and even galaxies(星系).

According to scientific research, about 2, 500 stars can be seen by the human eye without using any special equipment(設備).But because of light pollution, you can only see 200 to 300 stars from today’s countryside, and no more than ten stars from a cityIn most big cities, people cannot see the sky filled with stars like they did in their childhood

Light pollution affects more than just our view of skyResearch shows that lots of nighttime light can harm wildlife, too

When birds fly to another place over cities, they sometimes get lost by the brightness and fly in circles(圈) until they drop from tirednessSea turtles(海龜) need dark beaches for laying eggs, but they can’t find their ideal places because of those bright lights

Too much light at night may even affect human health, but scientists are not sure of that They are still learning more

In order to prevent things from going worse, governments and some organizations are working to reduce light pollutionMany cities and towns have taken action to reduce the use of lights at nightLights are used only when and where they are truly neededThey also shine lights down at the ground instead of up into the sky and use lower brightness levels

Hopefully, in the near future, humans can enjoy the clear and beautiful sky again and all the wildlife will live a peaceful and undisturbed life, too
