Side effects of fluorescent light

Admit it, you don't like the cold, lifeless light that emits from these bulbs, but what you don't know may hurt you!

Better to vie for the warm welcoming glow of old school incandescent bulbs then to roll the dice with these bulbs that, if you dare break one, spew toxic matter all over the place.



-Eye discomfort

-Eye strain

-Enhanced tumor formation

-Contributes to agoraphobia 

-Endocrine disruption

-Increased stress
