So is this all hysteria, or are the flourescent bulbs
Energy-saving light bulbs are so dangerous that everyone must leave the room for at least 15 minutes if one falls to the floor and breaks, a Government department warned yesterday.
The startling alert came as health experts also warned that toxic mercury inside the bulbs can aggravate a range of problems including migraines and dizziness.
So the people pushing these say there's so little mercury it's not a real problem, and the other side says it's a virtual booby trap in the house.
Ain't this all fun?
