Study States OBAMA Bulbs Could Cause Cancer…

Big Government took away the good old  incandescent light bulbs and replaced them with the much more expensive but “environmentally friendly” compact fluorescent light bulbs as a means of helping to “save the planet”.  This was done despite the knowledge that the high mercury content of these newer bulbs posed a potential health risk to users if they were broken. (with government provided directions on how to dispose of them no less)  Now a new study indicates that simply sitting next to one of these bulbs could greatly increase your chances of getting cancer.  Thank you again to the Big Government Nanny State proving stupid is as stupid does…

(In 2011 Barack Obama indicated the federal government was all-in on banning “old” light bulb technology in favor of CFL’S – the same CFL’s that new studies now indicate pose very serious health risks)

Great news: Federally-permitted lightbulbs a cancer risk

Legislate in haste … repent at leisure. In their haste to rid Americans of the unconscionable plague of perfectly safe if somewhat inefficient incandescent lighting, politicians in Washington have forced us to adopt more expensive technology in its place. Compact flourescent lighting (CFLs) are already known to be a considerable disposal risk, thanks to the mercury used in them. A new study reported earlier this week by Miami’s CBS affiliate warns of an operational risk as well — ultraviolet radiation that can cause skin cancers and even acute burns.

…Compact fluorescent light bulbs emit high levels of ultra violet radiation, according to a new study. Research at Long Island’s Stony Brook found that the bulbs emit rays so strong that they can actually burn skin and skin cells.

“The results were that you could actually initiate cell death,” said Marcia Simon, a Professor of Dermatology.

Exposure to the bulbs could lead to premature aging and skin cancer, according to doctors.

“It can also cause skin cancer in the deadliest form, and that’s melanoma,” said Dr. Rebecca Tung.   LINK


And once again, the Mainstream Media remains all but SILENT on the health concerns related to this government ban on SAFE light bulbs in favor of more expensive and much more dangerous Obama-approved light bulbs.

OH – and don’t forget who was among the most ardent supporters of the Obama 2008 campaign and the now continuing Obama administration – GENERAL ELECTRIC, who reported over $5 BILLION in U.S. profits alone in 2010 – profits that will now increase even more dramatically as the Obama government moves to fully enforce the incandescent ban in 2013.

(Barack Obama is all smiles when in the company of GE CEO Jeffrey Immelt, while Immelt is busy counting the billions his company is making off of the Obama approved incandensent light bulb ban that requires Americans to purchase the newer and more expensive bulbs GE manufactures. (In China no less – GE shut down older incandensent plants in the United States while opening up new CFL production facilities in China.  And yet no word of complaint from either Barack Obama or the Mainstream Media)

    • Your last paragraph really gets me pissed off. Obama is all cozy with GE which also owns nbc/msnbc and during the 2012 race they kept pounding Romney saying how he helped ship jobs overseas but it has been Obama and supporters like GE that have been really doing that all along. We have to pay like 300% more for light bulbs that go to companies making those light bulbs in places like China. Its total bullshit that Obama gets away with this. And unions keep supporting him because most the unions are now government unions not private company unions. And those workers don’t make anything but suck out all our tax dollars for six figure incomes and benefits packages.

    • No worries … ObamaBulb Cancer will be “fully” (for those not past their prime working years) and “freely” (for those who don’t work) covered by ObamaCare …

      What’s that? Oh, that’s only if you’ve purchased an ObamaIndulgence (i.e., contributed to his never-ending campaign or paid off one of his cronies) and received an ObamaExemption from ObamaHell?

      I see … so, when will The ObamaMessiah properly rename this country the Obama57States of the ObamaBananaRepublic?

    • Add that to the fact that these bulbs give many people headaches. Especially those who suffer from chronic migraines.

      Also, since fluorescent lights have been known to trigger seizures, I would be curious to find out what effect these bulbs have on epileptics.

      • I bought a lifetime’s worth of 60-75-100 Watt bulbs for myself and family over the last 3 years knowing that this day was coming. In fact, The retailer’s at the big box stores dropped the prices of these incandescent bulbs dirt cheap trying to deplete their stock. I will NOT comply…

    • Immelt recently said he believes Communism works well. Obama is regulating all industry into the Communist column…regulating captitalist Americans out of business. Name the disease…Obama is a Communist…like his father.

      Please copy the link and when you have time watch Grinding Down America

      It puts all that is happening under Obama in context….send it to your children. This scourge has infected Europe decades before America…hence the environmentalists are referred to as “Watermelons”…Green on the outside…Red inside. Communists

    • Thank you so very much for the CFL warning. I knew the bulbs were dangerous if broken, however, I certainly was not aware of their cancer causing potential for merely being near the bulbs. I have a work light for beadwork that shines overhead for hours every day as I work.

      Words can hardly describe how furious this makes me and others. I was so disturbed by this article, I ordered incandescent light bulbs by the case for my whole house and a new work lamp that uses an incandescent bulb. I would rather a higher electric bill then be poisoned by the government.

      This is yet another government culling of the people, for it takes about $350,000.00 worth of cancer treatments to kill a cancer victim. It comes as no surprise it is all about money for the elite such as GE who are in cahoots with the government, who then turn around and poison us with the CFL bulbs which in turn lines the pockets of the medical industrial complex who makes money on cancer treatments that will most likely kill you after your immune system is completely wiped out.

      That is why cancer comes back again even more aggressive usually within 5 years, due to the decimation of the immune system after repeated chemo and radiation treatments that mangle dna permanently.

      It is bad enough they add high fructose corn syrup and artificial sweeteners to all the food and beverages which are not converted to energy like table sugar is, instead it turns immediately to fat. The government just loves to blame people for being overweight or obese when it is the government who facilitates it by poisoning our food supply purposely with additives that the human body does not recognize as energy sources. It is best to try to cook from scratch and not use the microwave oven which destroys nutrients.

      Now there is new even more dangerous sweetener called neotame which the FDA has approved for use without labeling requirements. For more information, here is the link.

    • I make use of the UV from the bulbs in winter to get my vitamin D up. It helps.

      I never intended to live a risk free life. I plan to die of something. What? TBD.

    • This govt KNEW that. I knew this 2 yrs ago. OK You can buy bulbs in the old fashioned design with a halogen mechanism in them. You can also buy LED convention old fashioned bulbs- expensive but they last longer.

      Also I thought of a way to completely screw with Obama’s Hagel appointment. Spread the rumor on the internet everywhere that he is a Mossad operative under deep cover ( he may actually be and his anti Israel rhetoric may be a smokescreen) That will cause the shit to hit the fan. Alternatively email Hagel first and say you hear this rumor-is it true??? Guaranteed to make him crap his pants either way.

    • By the way: FB does NOT like this quotation from Gandhi. They threatened to ban several people who posted it. I posted it 4 times on differnet websites and got a warning.Now why would that be?

      “Among the many misdeeds of British rule in India, history will look upon the Act depriving a whole nation of arms as the blackest.” – Mohandas Gandhi, an Autobiography, page 446.
