When the US federal government begins to unlawfully rip away Americans’ freedom to purchase the light bulbs of their choice beginning on January 1, 2012, the only available choices will be poisonous compact fluorescent (CFL) bulbs, which are loaded with toxic mercury, or expensive light-emitting diode (LED) bulbs, which a recent CNET article explains will cost roughly $15 a piece for the 60-watt variety — and that is on the inexpensive end of the spectrum.

According to the report, Lighting Science Group and Dixon Technologies India have developed an omnidirectional LED bulb that emits light at the equivalent brightness of a 60 watt incandescent, and that will be priced just below $15. Since 60-watt equivalent LEDs have typically been priced at Read more…

Energy saving light bulbs ‘contain cancer causing chemicals’

Fears have been reignited about the safety of energy saving light bulbs after a group of scientists warned that they contain cancer causing chemicals.

Energy saving light bulbs

Scientists claim that several carcinogenic chemicals are released when energy saving light bulbs are switched on 
 
 

Their report advises that the bulbs should not be left on for extended periods, particularly near someone’s head, as they emit poisonous materials when switched on.

Peter Braun, who carried out the tests at the Berlin’s Alab Laboratory, said: “For such carcinogenic substances it is important they are kept as far away as possible from the human environment.”

The bulbs are already widely used in the UK following EU direction to phase out traditional incandescent lighting by the end of this year.

But the German scientists claimed that several carcinogenic chemicals and toxins were released when Read more…

SUBLIMINAL FLICKER Part II: Fluorescent Lights and Flicker Sensitivity

If you have incandescent light bulbs, I suggest you keep them… Light Bulb Freedom of Choice Act Oh yeah if you did not know, ALL CFLs are Made in China.  NOT ONE is produced in USA!

by Richard Conrad, Ph.D

Subliminal: below the threshold of conscious perception; inadequate to produce conscious awareness but able to evoke a response.

All types of fluorescent lights have some amount of flicker. Most of this flicker is invisible, at least to the conscious mind. Flicker is invisible when it consists of pulses or waves of light that repeat one after the other so rapidly that they appear to fuse together into steady light. Our flicker fusion frequency (the frequency above which we no longer consciously see flicker) ranges from about 25 to 55 Hz (Hz means times per second). Flicker fusion frequency varies with the person, with the intensity and color of the light, and also depends on where the light falls on the retina. Optic nerve signals proportional to flicker at frequencies far above the conscious flicker fusion frequency do reach our brain from the eye (as shown by EEG and other studies). Any invisibly flickering light that affects the brain is what I call Read more…
