Energy Saving Light Bulbs Of Death

The twisted looking energy saving fluorescent light bulbs are replacing the common incandescent ones we've used for years. They use one fourth the power and last longer. They are even becoming mandatory in some countries. The United States and the United Kingdom are set to completely phase them out by 2012.

According the U.K.'s Migraine Action Association and other health organizations the energy saving light bulbs that subtly flickers can cause problems for epileptics and cause headaches, nausea, dizziness, and even physical pain for those suffering with lupus, a painful disease that can turn humans into werewolves at the time of the full moon.

Paul Jansen from the charity said: "For some people a migraine attack can be triggered by fluorescent lights, video screens, stroboscopic effects and flashing lights."

"Most of the currently available low energy light bulbs are based on fluorescent light technology. "

Doctor Gregory House at the Princeton-Plainsboro Hospital in New Jersey said: " We have to give people an educated and informed choice or we're going to have a pandemic caused by their own living environments that's impossible to treat."

The UK Migraine Action Association was the one that highlighted the dangers of a nutritional supplement as made by the New York Soylent Company.

The supplement caused Migraines, Spongiform Encephalopathy a chronic, degenerative disorder affecting the central nervous system and extreme hair loss.

In 2012 will there be medical exemptions given and traditional incandescent bulbs prescribed? if so will there still be anyone who makes them or will they all be imported from China a country famous for its low quality?

Will be the price of these medical bulbs be exorbitant? These questions and many more needed to be answered so we sent our ace reporter Old Knudsen in search of the answers.

Jo Jackson from the Lighting Association denied that flicker was a problem with modern energy saving bulbs as she sweated profusely and shifted nervously in her seat with her Lacy white bra barely showing from under her open top button with the flickering glare of the light beating down upon her.

"Compact fluorescent lamps give a constant, flicker-free, nonstroboscopic light,"

She warned against poor quality, cheap lamps, saying: "A small number of cases have been reported by people who suffer from painful four hour long erections to certain types of linear (straight line) fluorescent lamps."

"These were almost certainly triggered by old technology."

A spokesman for the Energy Saving Trust said: "The technology has changed massively over the last few years. We would advise people to only buy bulbs with the Energy Saving Recommended - SR - logo."

Hmm. Where can I get those linear ones?:P

Why don't the curly ones cause curly erections? That would be interesting.

We use the curly ones, and haven't had any problems with headaches or anything. The only thing I don't like about them is that when you first turn them on they are dim, it takes awhile for them to warm up. But otherwise, I'm so glad not to have to replace my lightbulbs every freaking day anymore.

I put these bulbs in all over my mansion and they made me fat and pompous.

I am the sort of hombre who passions to try recent stuff. Right now I'm fabricating my personal solar panels. I am making it all by myself without the aid of my men. I'm using the net as the only path to acheive that. I stumbled upon a truly brilliant website which explains how to contruct pv panels and so on. The web site explains all the steps involved in solar panel construction.

I am not exactly sure about how correct the info given there is. If some guys over here who have xp with these things can have a see and give your feedback in the page it would be awesome and I would extremely value it, because I really lav [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/URL].

Thanks for reading this. U guys are the best.
