Title: Economy lamps bad for the health?
Post by: SiEger on March 28, 2008, 14:11:54 PM
I heard also this. The new economy ecological lamps, will emit a radiation that still no one knows if it is dangerous for the health.

This is for me true as these lamps i know that operate in high frequencies with strange sthings inside it and high voltages. This makes a perfect combination for a radio emitter.  For those that you know better about radio emitting, i think is more logic.

Every lamp that uses an electric arc to start emitting light also emits "waves", i don't know if its radiation or not but i'll check it out and re-post.

It's not exactly the type of lamps you mentioned but just to have an idea.

Even fluroescent lamps, economy is in the same family, emit UV radiation but not so much.

UV is UV. Even in small quantities, if is continuous, is can harm the genes.

Which lamps do you mean? Are they used in homes or just industry or working places?

Everywhere, in modern offices fluroescent lamps is a must and for household use their brothers, energy savers, gain place fast.
Incadecent lights is about to extinct in a few years by goverment laws all over the world.

If only the light was the single source of cancer that would be great but think, all the radiowaves from mobiles, Wifi and other stuff its good? Genetically mutated food is good? Pollution is good? Even if we live ok who can say to us that our kids wont born with three heads and seven arms? At least smoking is a pleasure. :)

The production of incadecent lams i mean, not every light source on earth.  :D

What i meant is that by that time, we will not live the civilization that we live today... We will live in caves, hunting with clubs and pulling our women from hair... like the good old times ;)
