When the US government decided to get rid of incandescent bulbs, they paid no attention to the health dangers of modern lighting alternatives. However, these energy efficient light bulbs are so toxic and dangerous that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency wrote an emergency protocol to follow in case of a bulb breakage. This is because they release poison gas.
A study performed by researchers from the Fraunhofer Wilhelm Klauditz Institute for German’s Federal Environment Agency, found that if broken indoors, these light bulbs release 20 times the maximum allowed mercury concentration into the air.

Energy Efficient Bulbs Dangers
1. Led Lights Promote Blindness
Spanish research has found that blue LED light can irreparably damage the cells in the eye’s retina. A study has confirmed that exposure to LED lights can cause irreparable damage to the retina of the human eye.
2. Energy efficient bulbs can cause cancer.
A new study done at Berlin Germany’s Alab Laboratory discovered that these light bulbs have poisonous carcinogens that could cause cancer. These include:
Phenol, a mildly acidic toxic white crystalline solid, obtained from coal tar and used in chemical manufacture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenol).
Naphthalene, a volatile white crystalline compound, made by the distillation of coal tar. It is used in mothballs and as a raw material for chemical manufacture (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naphthalene).
Styrene, an unsaturated liquid hydrocarbon – a petroleum byproduct (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Styrene).
LEDs contain lead, arsenic and other chemicals that have been linked to various cancers, neurological damage, kidney disease, hypertension, skin rashes and more.
These bulbs are so toxic that we you can’t place them in the regular garbage. If you break one inside, you must open all of your windows and doors, and leave the house for at least 15 minutes.
What to Use Instead
Good old-fashioned incandescent light bulbs are the best option for artificial lighting. Stock up while you can.
