Buying up Lightbulbs and the reason why I don't use CFL's

Dangers of Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs

These are the new light bulbs many people are using to conserve power. They will soon be mandated by the government as "traditional light bulbs will be banned in 2014." So, with this new CFL technology, most of us will have no alternative but to use these toxic, cancer-causing, buzzing EMF polluters. The only alternative will be the more expensive LED bulbs which actually are the safest.

These new Compact Fluorescent Light bulbs (CFL) are notorious for generating a high EMF field, higher than normal fluorescent lights. And, because you are more likely to be closer to a CFL lamp, the exposure is even higher.

According to a World Health Organization study, exposure symptoms may include dermatological symptoms as well as neurasthenic and vegetative (fatigue, concentration difficulties, dizziness, heart palpitations and digestive disturbances).

"CFL and Fluorescent lights produce dangerously high EMFs"

There have also been reports that while they donít cause skin cancer directly, they increase your chances of getting it.

It's important to understand that these energy-saving bulbs produce EMF of much higher intensity then regular bulbs. Of course they do not radiate as much as a microwave, but you have only one microwave at home and about 60 bulbs. Replacing all those bulbs with the energy saving bulbs could turn your house into a total electromagnetic mess.

Not only do these types of light bulbs produce high levels of EMF, they generate a especially potent and harmful type of EMF called "dirty EMF" which is even more toxic to the human body than other forms of EMF radiation

Levels of EMF around and close to some CFL lamps exceeds the doses considered to create risks. The impact of bringing many of these new EMF sources into our homes to replace the EMF free incandescent lamps might cause a tremendous effect on our health.

It has been shown that these new CFL light bulbs can cause Depression, Anxiety, and Panic Disorders. According to some Canadian research documents: "this type of EMF exposure, may cause adrenal glands to excrete too much Cortisol and adrenaline, which can lead to irritability and hyperactivity." The document states that EMF can cause a decrease in the brain
hormones, serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine, all of which are linked to depression and anxiety.

"Studies point to a link between CFLs and migraines"

People with panic disorder have reported panic attacks triggered by entering stores with fluorescent lighting and homes with CFL. While some of these panic attacks that occur under this scenario may be the result of a visual trigger, rather than the result of EMFs. Two of the symptoms of panic attacks are derealization and depersonalization, or feelings of unreality. Depersonalization and derealization are caused by shallow breathing that results in chemical changes in the body. When this occurs, people report that things around them look a bit different.
