Are CFL’s Completely Safe? Hmmn?
I see posts and various articles extolling all the virtues of CFL filled light bulbs. Good for the environment, saves energy, saves money, etc.
I believe all these are good reasons to switch to these types of bulbs. I know I have in my house.
However, if these puppies were COMPLETELY SAFE then warnings like this would be unnecessary …”The Environment Agency's latest advice focuses on the 6 to 8 milligrams of toxic mercury in each bulb.
Users who break a bulb should vacate the room for at least 15 minutes, the new guidelines say. The debris should not be removed with a vacuum cleaner, which could put toxic dust into the air, but with rubber gloves. The broken glass and all residues are to be placed into a sealed plastic bag and taken to a local official recycling site for proper disposal.”
That sounds like at least a little care be used with these cute little bulbs, yes?
