Danger! Government Lightbulbs Are Harmful to Your Health

Inspired by a European study, a team of Stony Brook University researchers looked into the potential impact of healthy human skin tissue (in vitro) being exposed to ultraviolet rays emitted from compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. The results, “The Effects of UV Emission from CFL Exposure on Human Dermal Fibroblasts and Keratinocytes in Vitro,” were published in the June issue of the journal ofPhotochemistry and Photobiology.

The researchers, led by Miriam Rafailovich, PhD, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering and the Director of the Garcia Center for Polymers at Engineered Interfaces at Stony Brook, conducted similar research to a European study on Light Sensitivity. Stony Brook researchers collected CFL bulbs purchased from different locations across Suffolk and Nassau counties, and then measured the amount of UV emissions and the integrity of each bulb’s phosphor coatings. Results revealed significant levels of UVC and UVA, which appeared to originate from cracks in the phosphor coatings, present in all CFL bulbs studied.

At Stony Brook’s Advanced Energy Research and Technology Center (AERTC), the team took the same bulbs and studied the effects of exposure on healthy human skin tissue cells, including: fibroblasts, a type of cell found in connective tissue that produces collagen; and keratinocytes, an epidermal cell that produces keratin, the key structural material in the outer layer of human skin. Tests were repeated with incandescent light bulbs of the same intensity and with the introduction of Titanium Dioxide (TiO2) nanoparticles, which are found in personal care products normally used for UV absorption.

  1. Seems like research on health hazards should have been conducted before all the laws were promulgated. Of course there were monetary considerations to the light bulb manufacturers that had to be accounted for in return for political support.

    • they were conducted, the results showed promise of human depopulation by Cancer and were subsequently approved. Of Course the elites have stockpiles of incandescent bulbs, and are therefore in no danger themselves.

  2. First they poison the water with Fluoride, now they poison the air with ultraviolet rays. Why do they still have 10% popularity – should be ZERO!

    Which goes to prove that the government does not have a clue as to what it is doing. This applies to all levels and parties. They have been playing with our dimes and lives for far too long, from the POTUS to the most lowly town meeting representative they are not qualified…..to butter bread.

      I'm in full agreement, our government is by far too intrusive into our daily lives. Their job should be limited to the original points, to provide for transportation, justice and defense. They expanded way beyond what our Constitution enumerates and that includes our bedrooms.

  4. I don't think it was the EPA who banned regular bulbs, I think it was congress that did it to reduce energy consumption. EPA should ban these blubs for their mercury content alone.

    The government, all levels don't give a rats arse about the lives of the ordinary citizens. It's all about them, money & prestige. I think they are trying to dumb down the population for easier control. For young people, they have been successful, the schools teach only commie trash, very little, if any American history. Also, what's with all these so called contrails from jets criss crossing the sky & lingering for hours. A real contrail disperses a few miles behind the plane. Chemicals to do what, make us sick, dumb us down or make us easier to control. Think about it before you call me a nut.

" Where the hell did they get the "tissue" samples from ??? You can't get that from cord blood but you can get it from what attached to the Umbilical cord ! Anybody else catch this?????
