I had only just posted on mobile phone dangers when I picked up a post from Micki Rose’s blog about CFLs – a pet hate of anyone who is electrosensitive. If you really want to know all that is bad about them, read Andrew Goldworthy’s comprehensive article but for ES sufferers, their main problem is that they use pulsed radiation which is what affects electro sensitives.
Micki’s blog however, draws attention to a German study of the dangers posed by broken CFLs that can pollute the atmosphere of a room for up to five hours!
My suggestion is that you stock up on the incandescent bulbs which still remain on sale (100 watt bulbs have already been banned by the daft EU ruling that says we all have to go CFL by 2012) while gradually transferring yourself to LED bulbs, definitely the bulb of the future. They are initially expensive but last, virtually, for ever and use very little energy. You can check them out at www.ecoleds.com or at www.efficientlight.co.uk.
