Less than one month after bombshell new research revealed that “environmentally safe” compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) contained carcinogenic chemicals, two leading bulb makers have introduced a new brand of LED light bulbs. The bulbs were introduced as an alternative to the toxin-laden CFL’s, though there is a drawback. Thanks to government regulations, traditional incandescent bulbs will soon be phased out of production — leading to a very frightening ultimatum: if you don’t want carcinogenic CFL light bulbs, you’ll have to pay $50 each for the new LED bulbs.
Experts have known the dangers of CFL light bulbs for quite some time, but new research has led to even the mainstream media now reporting on the dangers of CFL light bulbs. In an experiment carried out at the Berlin’s Alab Laboratory, it was found that the bulbs should not be left on for long periods of time — particularly near one’s head. This is due to the poisonous materials emitted from the so-called “eco-safe” bulbs when switched on. The researchers found that some of the carcinogens emitted from the bulbs included phenol, naphthalene, and styrene. While all of these chemicals are considerably dangerous to the body, it is worth mentioning that phenol was used as a means of execution by the Nazis in the second world war. Phenol, along with the other harmful chemicals, are substances that do not belong in any household or workplace.
