Elecromagnetic Radiation: CFL vs LED vs Incandescent

RE: Elecromagnetic Radiation: CFL vs LED vs Incandescent
An additional issue with the flourescent lights is the release of electrical smog.

"NEW LIGHTBULBS IN CANCER SCARE - THE EU ENERGY SAVERS RELEASE KILLER VAPOURS”

Health fears were raised last night over the use of energy saving light bulbs after a report claimed they CONTAIN CANCER CAUSING CHEMICALS. These include phenol - A POISON USED BY THE NAZIS TO KILL CONCENTRATION CAMP VICTIMS - and the toxins naphthalene and styrene which is released as a form of steam when the bulb is switched on.

The German scientists behind the report advise that the bulbs should not be left on for extended periods, especially near a person’s head. Researcher Peter Braun, who carried the tests at the independent Berlin Alab Laboratory said: "For such carcinogenic substances it is important that they are kept as far away as possible from the human environment"

He said the bulbs could be especially harmful if left on near a child’s head all night or used to read by for long periods by an adult. Andreas Kirchner of the Federation of German Engineers, said: "Electrical smog develops around these lamps. I, therefore use them only very economically. They should not be used in unventilated areas and definitely not in the proximity of the head" Daily Express, April 20th, 2011, P1, P4
