Cancer Can Be Caused By Energy Saving Bulbs

Energy saving bulbs may help cut down electricity bills, but it can take a toll on health. Fears have been reignited about the safety of energy saving bulbs after a group of scientists warned that they contain cancer containing chemicals. Their study has found that these energy savers emit cancer-causing chemicals when switched on. Scientists in Germany have claimed that energy saving bulbs should not be left on for a longer periods of time or placed near to person's head because they release poisonous materials. The German Scientists' study has shown that the chemicals are released in a form of steam. Scientists claimed that several carcinogenic chemicals and toxins were released when the environment friendly compact fluorescent lamps (CFL's) were switched on, including phenol, naphthalene and styrene.
