You are basing all of this on an abstract? Or do you have the full paper

The question is still valid. This is a paysite.

Unfortunately, many papers are distributed this way.

More info questioning the research:

But in contrast to media depictions of skin-frying CFLs, researchers are reluctant to draw conclusions about consumer risk on the basis of these findings. The UV measurement procedures are not described, so one cannot evaluate the data, says Mats-Olof Mattsson, a cell biology professor at the Austrian Institute of Technology. The authors also reported higher UV emissions than other studies have found3,4,5 and did not follow international measurement standards,6 he adds.
