Compact Flourescent Bulbs May Not Be So Great After All

Incandescent light bulbs are being banned in Canada in 2012. Banned! Such was the push to get us to switch to Compact Fluorescent bulbs, Home Depot gave away free bulbs to every household as part of the Green Star energy program. But are they safe?

Whoops, maybe not. Listen, if you are UV sensitive or just a-scared of Mercury leaking out into your air space, the government of Canada suggests you buy the covered version of the CFL bulb (this will help make that shitty light glow even shittier!) Or just sit further away. Try about 5 feet from your reading light.
