Now it appears that there may be hope yet for the Mainstream media after all... For according to this article, from the Telegraph online news service out of the United Kingdom (www.telegraph.co.uk) it appears that some truth about CFL's is finally coming out. The article is entitled: "Energy Saving Light Bulbs 'Contain Cancer Causing Chemicals'", and I have that entire article right here for everyone to see for themselves:
Energy saving light bulbs 'contain cancer causing chemicals'
Fears have been reignited about the safety of energy saving light bulbs after a group of scientists warned that they contain cancer causing chemicals.
British experts insisted that more research was needed and urged consumers not to panic.
Dr Michelle Bloor, senior lecturer in Environmental Science at Portsmouth University, told the Daily Express: “Further independent studies would need to be undertaken to back up the presented German research.”
The Department for the Environment insists the bulbs are safe, despite the fact that they contain small amounts of mercury which would leak out if the glass was broken.
Advice on its website states: “Energy efficient light bulbs are not a danger to the public.
“Although they contain mercury, limited at 5mg per lamp, it cannot escape from a lamp that is intact.
“In any case, the very small amount contained in an energy efficient bulb is unlikely to cause harm even if the lamp should be broken.”
The latest report follows claims by Abraham Haim, a professor of biology at Haifa University in Israel, that the bulbs could result in higher breast cancer rates if used late at night.
He said that the bluer light that CFLs emitted closely mimicked daylight, disrupting the body's production of the hormone melatonin more than older-style filament bulbs, which cast a yellower light.
The Migraine Action Association has warned that they could trigger migraines and skin care specialists have claimed that their intense light could exacerbate a range of existing skin problems.
NTS Notes: I will not gloat that I have been right all along.....Sometimes I have to keep repeating that....
I have felt that my reports about warning everyone to absolutely refuse to put these dangerous and deadly devices as a replacement for standard tungsten filament light bulbs has fallen on deaf ears for years. But now, I and others that have tried to warn the public, have again been proven absolutely correct!
Now it seems after all these years of the alternative news warning people about the health hazards of CFL's has finally paid off... Again, it does seem that there may be hope for the mainstream media after all, and instead of making themselves off as laughing stocks, they can actually try to tell the truth to the public.
Bottom line is this...Absolutely do NOT use these CFL's in your homes, period. They are unreliable, have many issues with their safety, their light has a strange and sickening neurological effect on many users, and on top of all that, they contain cancer causing chemicals, as well as poisonous Mercury. Stick to conventional tungsten filament bulbs which have a proven history of reliability and safety!
