ex-UKIP Whistle Blower exposes EU HYPOCRACY

Energy saving bulbs 'release cancer causing chemicals', say scientists

New fears: Cancer causing chemicals are released by energy-saving bulbs when they are switched on, scientists said
New fears: Cancer causing chemicals are released by energy-saving bulbs when they are switched on, scientists said
Energy saving bulbs emit cancer causing chemicals it was claimed last night as new fears were raised about their safety.
Scientists said they should not be left on for long periods of time or placed close to a person's head because they release poisonous materials.
The EU has unveiled plans to phase out 'normal' incandescent bulbs by the end of next year as they try to cut carbon emissions.
They should not be used by adults to read or kept near a child's head all night, the experts said.
While it is already known that harmful amounts of Mercury are released if one of the new 'green' bulbs is broken, the latest research shows other carcinogenic chemicals are emitted when they are switched on.
The German research shows that the chemicals are released as a form of steam.
The harmful substances include phenol - a poison injected by the Nazis to kill thousands of concentration camp victims during World War II - and the human toxins naphthalene and styrene.
Tests showed that the materials used to make the lamps are probably responsible for their potentially harmful side effects.
Andreas Kirchner, from 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.'
'They should not be used in unventilated areas and definitely not in the proximity of the head.'
The report on German television forced the country’s environmental protection agency to issue a warning against 'public hysteria.'
The Department for the Environment has insisted that the bulbs are safe.
Dr Michelle Bloor, lecturer in Environmental Science at Portsmouth University, told the Daily Express: 'Further independent studies would need to be undertaken to back up the presented German research.'

British Politicians with pens and treachery, in pursuit of their own agenda and greed, have done more damage to the liberty, freedoms, rights and democracy of the British peoples than any army in over 1,000 years.

The disastrous effects of British politicians selling Britain into the thrall of foreign rule by the EU for their own personal rewards has damaged the well-being of Britain more than the armies of Hitler and the Franco - German - Italian axis of 1939 - 1945.

  1. Yes, and as your previous posts also show, the cancer issue is not the only problem with CFLs, or even LEDs...

    Home Safety: Fire Risks -- Radiation -- Health

    The CFL Mercury Issue: Breakage -- Recycling -- Dumping -- Mining -- Manufacturing -- Transport -- Power Plants

    LEDs: The Lead and Arsenic Issue
    Lead, arsenic and other toxic content, home breakage and disposal concerns

    The Overall Small Energy Savings
    USA Dept of Energy and EU official sources, less than 1% of society energy usage saved from light bulb regulations

    ..as covered on ceolas.net/#li18eax

    Notice also how major light bulb manufacturers welcome the ban on unprofitable cheap simple types of incandescent light bulbs,
    allowing them to sell more CFLs, that people would not otherwise buy - and, arguably, justifiably would not buy.....
