Confused by Compact Fluorescent Lamps ?

I bought a pkg of CFL bulbs , before I realized they contained mercury. Please read this blog ~ , she has alot of info about these bulbs and why we should reconsider using them.

I will not purchase anymore , I'll save energy by keeping the lights turned off , unless I actually need them. I for one , don't believe there is a safe way to dispose of them , sooner or later they will harm the environment . I see no reason to save energy , but create another problem in the future. Do you think everyone will dispose of CFL's properly?

Hopefully , there will be a better solution in the future. What are your thoughts about CFL's?

Yeah, we bought some too and what if they break? Mercury is more posionous then lead.

As far as I know they still use mercury in fillings. Less but still use something that is poisonous to people.

That might be a reason for health issues in some people and even mentel illness.

God Bless You and Yours!!!
