B-B-B-But, You HAVE to Leave Them On to Get Your $6.97 Worth OUT of Them!

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.

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.”

(And I’m blonde, too. This is gonna be a toughie.) So don’t leave them on and ~ WHATEVER YOU DO ~ DON’T use them, like, GOD FORBID, in a READING LAMP, or any equally as vile and dangerous an activity requiring a light source.

Holy crap.

This is how they eliminate the opposition. Keeping us infirm AND ignorant, all in one fell swoop, with our healthcare for their miserable illumination incurred cancers entirely dependent upon their beneficence. Greenie weenie BASTARDS!!!

Rage, RAGE against the dying of the light!!!!!!

Or the dying FROM the light!!!!

I may have been a tad hasty dumping the whale oil futures…

    It’s a plot by GE so they can sell bizillions of their new LED lights. Is it so wrong just to have a plain old 100 watt light bulb?

  2. Don’t buy GE, ever again. I am saving for LEDs, but will get them from some other company.

    GE can ESAD.

    GE lights suck. Get these instead.
    Made in the USA by non-union labor (NC is a right-to-work state). I have a couple of the 7w bulbs in my kitchen and they are great.
    And I’m not just saying that cause I work there, either. 😉

  4. major dad says:

    Who sells them Larry? And what is the projected MTBF? Those CFLs don’t last squat despite what they claim.

    This never sounded so prophetic.

    Oh. well, I worked for GE for a while – yanno, employee? I promise you, Larry, that I will not buy any GE bulbs (or any other product they make).

    Actually, it was GE that actually made me realize that Unions have their points. The 5 person, understaffed department I worked in there (downsized) made a temporary 5-person union once. They wanted to put us all on (overtime-exempt) salary. We sent them a (signed by all FIVE of us – huge union there) letter that said we would ALL quit on the spot if they did that.
    They backed down. (Note that all 4 of us were, at the time, working 60+ hours per week.)

    Oops – 5 of us. Sorry. It went down to 4 a bout 6 months later. About 2 weeks after that, I quit.
