#1 Watt? CFLís Cause Cancer?07-30-2012, 09:08 PM
" The report goes on to say that the bulbs should not be left on for extended periods of time due to the poisonous materials emitted by the CFLís."

Good subject for discussion, Retread!
Can't stand them!!! Have always hated the stupid curly things whenever I have come into contact with them.
Have absolutely none of them in my house. Hate the *color* that they give off. Not user-friendly in the least! Are harsh and not the least bit relaxing, when you want low lighting ... and positively horrid when you need to read by them.
Have been away in the last couple of years while on the road to our destination ... and the blinking things are even found in the best of hotels and motels.
Must indeed be cheaper to run, else they wouldn't be using the damn things!
Well, will let you in on a secret, here. I travel with two old fashioned 60 watt incandescent bulbs of my own, and simply screw them in when we get there! ...
As for the cancer effect ... have no idea one way or the other.

Having them on reminds me of the office scenes from "Joe vs. the Volcano."

I like anything green that saves me money!
They also put off less heat and I use them in my outdoor lights, it made a difference on the electric bill.
I understand not everyone likes them and some people find it difficult to read using them. I still have a reading lamp and I don't always get the "curly" bulbs.
Soon the price of the LED bulbs will be more affordable and I will switch to them.

Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
