Compact Fluorescent Bulbs Could Cause Ultraviolet Damage to Skin

We know CFL bulbs are world-changingly efficient, producing the same level of light as their incandescent parents while using a quarter of the energy. But they're still a relatively new device, and few long-term studies have been carried out on them. One of the most recent, a new report from a team at Stony Brook, suggests CFLs might cause damage to skin by releasing UV rays.

Amen Neil, I look at it this way, being a contrary type. In the summer when notably less lighting is needed, I'll use incandescents. In the winter when dark time is longer, I'll still use incandescents. The so called "waste of energy because unlike a CFL, it produces more heat than light" will serve me well, by dispersing the "waste" heat into the living areas, lowering my heating energy use thereby, thus saving the planet through the back door. (Though I'm confident the planet doesn't need my help)

I've had mixed results with these bulbs too. I recently disposed of one I bought back in the early 2000s, but I've had others not last nearly as long.

Sorry, but I didn't get the brand name before I threw it out.

Incidentally, is it possible to redeem the mercury in a reasonably safe manner from these things? Toxic as it is, a friend of mine told me mercury is great for cleaning the lead out of gun barrels, provided you can obtain enough of it to do the job. My friend got his from discarded mercury switches removed from old HVAC control units.

Mike, I got a box of 3 that was on clearance from Office Depot. Apparently originally they weren't cheap, but I've had one going for a couple of years as a porch light. I think I know where I put another (hey if I find the 3rd, it will make life easy ) But a CFL that lasted that long of time in an enclosed area with extremes of temperature it is a good bulb. Of course you know that CFLs should never be put put in an enclosed space so remove all your light fixtures and put them away somewhere. They last a lot longer hanging out naked.

I believe I have another one in an enclosed space that I don't have to climb up on something to see what the brand is, and from there on in, use that brand of cfls.

Breaking any florescent including any of the golden oldies almost requires calling out your local hazmat team -- don't do it

Thanks for the heads-up, Neil. Saving the world is ok, if I don't have to work at it, but saving myself money, I will give some thought to.

Ditto for LED bulbs ‚Äď short-lived, & like Puritanical eco-fascists, too dim.

Anecdote: One neighbor of ours criticized another for growing plants in the desert which require irrigation. This from people who have an air-conditioned home & drive a Cadillac.

It's painful to be a frugal person wanting to save energy, yet not wanting to be associated with Green Fools either. I want to save money, not the planet.

I've already seen two of our "11 year" CFLs die after a year or so. Let others imagine they are saving the planet by contaminating the planet with mercury. (Have you read what you are supposed to do if one breaks?) CFLs are an overpriced joke, and so is the "energy-saving" propaganda that comes with them.
