The Government’s Green Light Bulbs Are Bad For Your HealthMonday, July 23, 2012
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.
