Is it constitutional for the government to force us to purchase something that can ultimately lead to our demise? It’s what the EPA admits will happen if we’re fool enough to contaminate our own water supply with these dangerous CFL bulbs that are being pushed on us, for some, under duress.
I’d love to hear your thoughts on the subject of CFL bulbs. I may be repeating myself but the facts are still the same. In the not too distant future, the ‘government’ is going to mandate by law that we purchase CFL bulbs, and make the innocent incandescent illegal. ‘They’ proclaim these bulbs are the almighty solution when they’re actually causing more harm than good.

Many people are complaining of seizures and headaches when under these bulbs. Most studies brush these individuals off as inconsequential.
Here’s an excerpt from one study on the health effects of the CFL bulbs:
The newer compact fluorescent light bulbs generate radio frequency radiation as well as ultraviolet radiation (see Figure 1) and many still generate heat although less of it. These frequencies (RF3 and UV4) have been associated with adverse health in numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies and a growing number of people are complaining that these bulbs make them ill. Instead of promoting compact fluorescent light bulbs, governments should be insisting that manufacturers produce light bulbs that do not produce radio frequency or UV radiation and that are safe for the environment and for human health.
It’s not too late to stop what could be a worldwide tragedy. These bulbs have been subtly ingrained into our international sub-conscious as being good for the environment even though they’re ALL made in China. Companies like GE closed ALL their light bulb factories in the US and moved production overseas. These bulbs are considered toxic and hazardous (by the EPA) once they burn out or break, have excess plastic packaging, increase Mercury and coal production, have no warning labels and have to be taken to a Toxic Dump to recycle them IF they’re not broken. If they break, it’s your problem.
And we’re being convinced they’re ‘Green’.
Please educate yourself about the negative global effects these have on the planet from job losses to becoming toxic, hazardous waste once they break or burn out. The footprint and losing American jobs alone is enough for me, but the disposal and the hazards they pose to our water systems is too enormous to ignore.
We have a choice to not blindly accept that changing to these light bulbs is the right thing to do. Please look into the additional Mercury production that the hundreds of million of these has fueled. Hundreds of millions of these have already been sold with no place to dispose of them as very few town have Toxic Waste dumps and the ones that do won’t take broken bulbs. To put that number into perspective, only 200 million Frisbees were sold since they’re debut in the 50s.
PLEASE boycott these until every single town either has a pickup program or there is a Toxic Waste facility in all towns that don’t have Ikea or Home Depot (those are two places that will recycle them, if you or your neighbors bother to double bag them in plastic and drive them over…if they’re not broken…if they’re broken, it’s your problem).
Thank you for keeping this topic alive and making your own decision, not being forced to buy things through a government deal with GE and China.
