A compact fluorescent light is a type of energy-saving bulb that fits into a standard light bulb socket or plugs into a small lighting fixture, and right now, compact fluorescents being made mandatory by our Government. But did you know they can also be toxic to you, your home and the environment?
Fluorescent lights are filled with a gas containing low-pressure mercury vapor and argon, or sometimes even krypton. The inner surface of the bulb is coated with a fluorescent coating made of varying blends of metallic and rare earth phosphor salts. Fluorescent Bulbs are more energy efficient than incandescent light bulbs of an equivalent brightness, and the efficiency of fluorescent lighting owes much to low-pressure Mercury photon discharges. But fluorescents don't produce a steady light, and they burn out more quickly when cycled frequently; they also contain items such as fluorine, neon, and lead powder
According to recycling survey each year an estimated 600 million fluorescent lamps are disposed of in North American landfills, amounting to 30,000 pounds of mercury waste. Astonishingly, that's almost half the amount of mercury emitted into the atmosphere by coal-fired power plants each year. It only takes 4mg of mercury to contaminate up to 7,000 gallons of freshwater, meaning that the 30,000 pounds of mercury thrown away in compact fluorescent light bulbs each year is enough to pollute nearly every lake, pond, river and stream in North America (not to mention the oceans).
Mercury (also called 'quicksilver') is a heavy, silvery transition metal most commonly found in thermometers, barometers, and other scientific apparatus. It is used in the electrical industry and in laboratory and medical instruments. Mercury is a known neurotoxin, and elevated blood mercury levels may lead to retardation and deformities in children. Chest pains, dyspnea, coughing, hemoptysis, and sometimes interstitial pneumonitis leading to death may follow acute inhalation exposure to mercury vapor. In America, 1 in 6 children born every year have been exposed to mercury levels so high that they are potentially at risk for learning disabilities, motor skill impairment and short-term memory loss.
They do not emit any heat – so up goes your thermometers and how do you prevent your pipes and pet food from freezing?
These bulbs will only last a long time if left on continuously...
turning CFL's on and off diminishes their life span drastically.
(Often giving a lifespan less than a incandescent.)
Alternatives to mercury-containing compact fluorescent lights.
LED lights, contain absolutely no mercury or toxic chemicals,
and conventional LED's are made from a variety of inorganic
semiconductor materials. They don't generate RF wavelengths
that cause radio interference, or emit ultraviolet (UV) light --
so LED's will not readily attract bugs and other insects.
Sylvania announced on February 20th, 2010 that they have developed a halogen bulb that resembles the old fashioned incandescent bulbs and meets the imposed low energy standards required by governments. It produces a high quality bright, white light in all directions like the phased out incandescent bulbs. They contain no mercury and they produce no dirty electricity or EMF radiation.

CFL's will also disrupt the electrical frequency in your home … causing interference with your TV, Radio and Cell Phone service.

Quite the video. Isn’t this something? Nothing but disregard and greed!

This is the new Canadian $20 silver coin and it sold out in just 39 days... It is supposed to be a child in a canoe reaching down to connect with their past. But if you zoom in it looks more like an Alien - Large Head - Big Eyes - No Hair - Just look at the detail on the Indians face... so why is the child's face so distorted - Are They Trying to Tell Us Something?
