The Government’s Green Light Bulbs Are Bad For Your Health

Is it any surprise that a team of researchers have found that compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs are a health hazard?

“Despite their large energy savings, consumers should be careful when using compact fluorescent light bulbs,” said Professor Rafailovich. “Our research shows that it is best to avoid using them at close distances and that they are safest when placed behind an additional glass cover.”

Stories from last year indicated that the green-government bulbs release carcinogenic chemicals and toxins in addition to frying your skin. Thus the reason for the EPA’s warnings for cleaning up a toxic spill in your home. It’s just another reason I keep a good stock of human-friendly incandescent bulbs.

    Wandered through the clearance aisle at Walmart last month and picked up 20 16-count boxes of Sylvania 100w incandescent bulbs for $1 per box. Not bulb. Box.    I told my grade school son, “Son. You’re going to thank me one day.”

    I read an article a year or so ago about a European who imports incandescent bulbs from China and sells them as mini heaters. That way he is able to circumvent their stupid laws. Something to think about . . .

    Been doing the same with incandescents…anyone know when their cut off date is on when those bulbs not being manufactured anymore? I think I had read something about them leaving the market in time. So now, govt green bulbs are bad for us…guess it isn’t easy being green as Kermit used to say (I think!). So now the old red, white and blue just seems to toss the old brown crap are way just about everyday…and of course, we know why those green bulbs were pushed onto is all about the ‘green’, no? Like in the wallet of the jerks who produced something that would make us sick…guess so many of them went to an Ivy League school..seems today, if you want to be truly stupid, or truly corrupt, it sure helps to have that Ivy degree, no?
