Anyone else think this light bulb ban is BS?


The new energy efficient light bulbs (Them ugly spiral things) make my husband get horrible migraines and make me dizzy and sick to my stomach. They just put them in at work and he has been sick since. Why are they outlawing safe bulbs for ones that hurt people and make them sick!? I refuse to use them. When they stop making the other ones, I will go without light at night. They make both of us feel awful! Energy saving my butt! They suck the life out of us!

    LED will become more popular as the prices come down. BTW, fluorescent bubs have had mercury in them for a long time.

    They are banning the standard house bulbs all over the US so businesses and homes are forced into using them mercury filled spiral pieces of crap. lol By ban, I mean banning the production of them.

    I know! They are filled with mercury! They will probably end up giving people cancer. They bypassed all the side effects and pushed to ban the production of standard bulbs..They can kiss my butt! I am NOT using them things in my house!
