CFL & LED Lighting

There are also adverse health effects associated with so-called “green” energy saving lights and lightbulbs, CFLs and LEDs. These bulbs may last longer but are not conducive to good health or a healthy home or workplace as they have significant health dangers from their electromagnetic fields.  They can cause headaches, blurred vision and are co-contributors to many illnesses. They produce EMFs and also create Dirty Electricity on the electric wiring in your home.

CFLs and flourescent light bulbs also contain mercury which is an extremely toxic heavy metal – if you break one of these you are in danger of breathing in vapours of mercury.

The safest bulbs to use are Incandescent light bulbs, but these safe incandescent light bulbs are banned in the EU.  Some hardware shops still sell them.

New LED streetlamps are also causing problems for people living near them as they they are extremely bright and glaring and are disruptive to sleep.  They are also harmful to birds, insects and wildlife.
