Re: Another Reason to Not Use CFLs...

Unless you went blind and got cancer from the fluorescent lights in the office you've been working in for the last ten years, CFLs aren't going to make you blind or give you cancer. The glass itself absorbs most of the UV.

It's wierdo, not weirdo. Yes, I know that's not the 'proper' spelling of the similar english language word.

Did you read the Abstract? Much of the UV was NOT absorbed by the glass and, instead, fell on the cell cultures. That's why its a big deal.

"Regular" fluorescent lamps aren't built that poorly, the coating isn't cracked and UV is absorbed by the fluorescent layer.
