Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs: A New Cancer Risk in Your Home | The Alliance for Natural Health USA

Via anh-usa.org » Submitted On Wed, 02/20/2013 - 7:04am by Maria

February 19, 2013 Have the government and General Electric lied to us? Action Alert! The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) mandates the phase-out of incandescent light bulbs, and favors energy-efficient compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Sounds good-until you realize that CFL bulbs contain mercury, and mercury poses a significant cancer risk.

You can't access the mercury unless you smash the bulbs and then come into contact with the mercury itself. This is the lamest argument against CFLs I've seen. Guess what else causes cancer? Gasoline, motor oil, the lead in your car's batteries...

I agree with most of the comments below. But this is what happens when government is joined to big corporations like General Electric! They are or were, working together. Jeffery Immelt who went "great guns" with the Obama regime for several years.

If there is some hope in this, the price of LED bulbs is coming down due to competition and increase in production.

I use these new bulbs, but never touch them barehanded! Don't like them at all! This is just another example of our government doing things it has no right to do! Both sides are to blame and the people will have to stop them!

We DO NOT USE them. There are places to buy other bulbs. Our home is stocked with them. If we can no longer find the Old Style Bulbs...then looks like candles and gas lighting is the option. These Compact bulbs are poison, so why even buy them?

I've seen incandescent bulbs at Wal Mart. The package states "Made in China", Maybe that the 98 watt bulbs posted above. We stocked up, a little at a time over a few years.

Same issue with solar cells containing heavy metals and other toxins. The wind mills near Palm Springs kill migratory birds, which is denied by the wind turbine industry. Disposal of lithium ion batteries for electric and hybrid cars will be creating an environmental nightmare soon.
