BulbAmerica, a leading wholesale retailer of quality lighting fixtures and light bulbs in the United States is an environmentally conscious company that believes in offering all their customers reliable and trustworthy information regarding various lighting products. A recent study conducted by Peter Braun in Berlin’s Alab Laboratory revealed that the compact and environmentally-friendly CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) that are going to replace the age old incandescent light bulbs contain carcinogenic substances.
Some of these toxic and cancer causing substances include phenol, naphthalene, and styrene. Scientists in Germany are strongly advising people to use these bulbs sparingly and only in areas that have good ventilation as these bulbs are now known to generate electrical smog that is extremely harmful. A professor of biology at Haifa University in Israel, Abraham Haim found that the likelihood of women getting breast cancer increased due to the light emitted by Compact Fluorescent Bulbs. This light disrupts the production of the hormone melatonin in the body.
Says a lighting expert at BulbAmerica, “These CFL's are marketed as safe products but can potentially damage the liver, brain, kidneys, and the CNS only if the light bulbs are broken, cracked, or not disposed off properly.” CFLs are also known to produce radiation that is also associated with a number of health defects including, but not limited to dizziness, headaches, weakness, sleep abnormalities, fatigue, and migraine headaches. With the government’s decision to go ahead with banning the sale of 100 watt traditional incandescent light bulbs with the 75-watt version of toxic CFLs by January 1, 2012, people might be forced to use these compact fluorescents.
