Re: Another Reason to Not Use CFLs...

Halogen lamps also emit UV.
As do regular old fluorescent lights.

Much ado about nothing, IMHO. Especially since I'd say most are used in some sort of fixture that will include a glass cover.

Shame really as I like the look of Daylight CFL's much better than the nasty, ugly incandescent "soft white" light.

Quoted in the original post:
"No effect on cells, with or without TiO2 NPs, was observed when they were exposed to incandescent light of the same intensity."

The comparison appeared to be with CFLs and their couterpart, which are incandescents, not halogens.

Yes but I believe the new "High efficiency" incandescents are halogen bulbs.

"Regular old fluorescent lights" have been found to be safe, »www.nema.org/Policy/Environmenta···20C7.pdf this issue is new.

I use plenty of them and am not going to rip out the ones I use, but I now won't use them in certain areas where line of sight is common or they're too close to the skin.

I don't know how well glass filters UVC, either.

But this study found the problem was with the CFLs, nothing else.

Yeah I hate the soft whites, I ended up getting a 4100K bulb it's OK but it takes like 2-3 min to get full bright..

I can't fit my Maxlite bulb in the NuTone fan but I would really like that one it's instant start to full brightness but it's about 1/2 too long and I can't fit the cover on..

I ended up getting that maxlite and a 105 watt CFL from 1000 bulbs about 3 years ago, I would order more but you need a min order of like $20 before they shipped (unless they changed)

Indiana and Pennsylvania have had their sunlight cut off in accordance with the "Three Strikes" rule.

Too much reading of books, a clear copyright violation.
