Red light gives heat for all manner of processes, including personal 
warmth.  Fire enabled early humans to spread throughout all climate zones 
on the planet. Blue light- or shall we say purple light, ultraviolet, etc. 
- disrupts DNA of living organisms.  That can be bad or good depending on 
context - good if you are extinguishing TB in a hospital ventilation, bad 
if you get sunburned one too many times.

Too much of either can kill.  Infrared, however, is generally far more useful.

there ya go!
