They really seem to have it in for them this week…. 5 days into 2008, and already they’ve got 3 news stories up on the site.
Low Energy Light bulbs cause migraines
Low Energy Light bulbs worsen Skin rashes
And now…… Environment Agency issues warnings about how to dispose of the damn things properly (which sounds akin to handling nuclear waste or asbestos)
Personally I’ve never been much of a fan of the things myself… and I remember while round at my Grandma’s one day while her house was being assessed for some low cost energy scheme for old / disabled people (“Warm front” / “Stay warm”?) the bloke going round the house doing it advised they shouldn’t be turned on if you’re going to be in & out the room for an hour or less at a time (or words to that effect), as they use up 10times more energy than a normal bulb for the first hour or so of use.
