Light-emitting diode (LED) lights may cause permanent damage to your eyes, a new research has claimed. The study found that exposure to LED lights can cause irreparable harm to the retina of the human eye. Once the retina cells are destroyed by prolonged and continuous exposure to LED rays, they cannot be replaced and will not regrow, ThinkSpain.com reported. Researchers said this is caused by the high levels of radiation in the ‘blue band’, and is likely to become a global epidemic in the medium term given that computer, mobiles and TV screens, and even traffic and street lights, have been gradually [&hellip

These days, it’s impossible to escape blue light. TVs, computers, smartphones, tablets and e-readers bombard our eyes with blue light emissions day and night. Electronic devices aren’t the only culprits. Energy-saving light bulbs (notably LEDs) may be “green” but they also emit a significant proportion of blue light (also known as High-Energy Visible [HEV] light). While present in natural light, blue light occurs in abnormal proportions in artificial light sources. Blue/HEV light covers wavelengths from 380 to 500 nanometers (nm). Although the eyes’ natural filters block UV light, they do not block blue/HEV light, meaning it is able to pass [&hellip

http://freedomoutpost.com/2012/11/light-bulbs-that-kill/ The politician – Nick Rahall (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nick_Rahall) -” introduced the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007, which banned incandescent light bulbs. Despite introducing the legislation, Rahall voted against the bill on final passage. As result of the legislation, as of January 1, 2014, incandescent light bulbs between 40 watts and 150 watts are illegal to manufacture or import.”   Nich Rahall is now retired having served 19 terms in the House of Representatives  on an annual pension of $139,000.  &nbsp

A look at how dangerous the new energy-saving light bulbs are. The EU has banned many incandescent bulbs in favor of Compact Florescent Lights (CFLs). CFLs emit serious toxins while being used. All Florescent lights contain Mercury. There is enough Mercury to pose a serious health risk in the event of a CLF breakage. People are being told to run out of the building for 15 minutes, open windows and turn off the heat. Additionally the bulbs do not last as long as advertised and they take a long time to warm up, decreasing in brightness over time. The light [&hellip

  It is not only the mercury and the UV you need to be concerned about when it comes to CFL bulbs.  They also release carcinogenic chemicals when they heat up according to a Germany study and we found they generate dirty electricity and radio frequency radiation through the air. Some GE bulbs have a warning not to use them near marine installations as they interfere with marine wireless channels. The mercury is a serious issue if the bulbs break but they are also poisoning the Chinese workers and levels of mercury as a form of air pollution from China are being [&hellip

Have the government and General Electric lied to us? Action Alert! The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 (EISA) mandates the phase-out of incandescent light bulbs, and favors energy-efficient compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs. Sounds good—until you realize that CFL bulbs contain mercury, and mercury poses a significant cancer risk. A new study shows that CFL bulbs also emit high levels of ultraviolet radiation—specifically, UVC and UVA rays. In fact, the UV rays are so strong that they can actually burn skin and skin cells. Experts say the radiation could initiate cell death and cause skin cancer in its deadliest form—melanoma. In every bulb the researchers [&hellip

  Have you noticed your friends and neighbors stockpiling incandescent light bulbs – here’s why, Compact Florescent Bulbs Pros:  Compact Florescent Bulbes Last Longer  – Only if you leave them on continuously They use less electricity – but they emit no heat – so you end up turning up your thermostat. Cons: They emit UV radiation. The more you have, the greater the risk Harmful to animals in the home1 Increase blood sugar levels – a risk for diabetics 12 times the risk of catching fire compared to incandescent bulbs Must be taken to a certified disposal depot. Requires special [&hellip
