CFL bulbs hurt the environment with mercury and the UV burns your skin

Study: Exposure to CFL bulbs harms healthy skin cells | The Daily Caller:

New research funded by the National Science Foundation has scientists warning consumers about the potentially harmful effects energy-saving CFL light bulbs can have on skin.

The warning comes based on a study conducted by Stony Brook University and New York State Stem Cell Science — published in the June issue of Photochemistry and Photobiology — which looked at whether and how the invisible UV rays CFL bulbs emit affect the skin.

Based on the research, scientists concluded that CFL light bulbs can be harmful to healthy skin cells.

“Our study revealed that the response of healthy skin cells to UV emitted from CFL bulbs is consistent with damage from ultraviolet radiation,” said lead researcher Miriam Rafailovich, Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Stony Brook University, in New York, in a statement. “Skin cell damage was further enhanced when low dosages of TiO2 nanoparticles were introduced to the skin cells prior to exposure.”

So, the bulbs hurt us, the billions of dollars, probably trillions now,  pulled out of the economy to obey the mini-dictators of federal offices that could have enabled much more health care in the free market and create wealth and jobs, and decisions muzzling free speech and free exercise to protect the freedom of a few to “protect” everybody else from the speech, these things have nothing to do with freedom of choice, or civil rights.
They are controls, and some of them are simply to get us used to obeying our government masters for when they finally declare themselves.
People sometimes forget that slavery was all about involuntary total economic control over the fruits of another person’s labor, and total control over what he does with it. But when the person enjoys total freedom, he has total economic control over the fruits of his own labor, and the fruits of whatever he does with it (in trade and investment).
Tax Freedom Day in the United States this year was April 17, 2012, four days later than the year before. That’s how long it takes Americans as a whole to pay taxes. 107 days out of the 366 days of the year 2012.

So in the United States we are slaves, under involuntary servitude, as a whole, for about one-third of the whole year, 107 days out of 366. That’s almost 30%!

So we’re “only” one-third slaves.

Except for one more step in this reasoning. We are “only” one-third slaves because our slave-masters have decided to let us keep two-thirds of the fruits of our labor for expenses. The whole thing is based on the idea that whoever is in control owns 100% of us, and they decide what we keep.

That’s the whole unspoken idea in the debate over how much Americans pay in taxes in Congress. They are the ones who decide how much to let us keep.

Ladies and gentlemen, that’s called feudalism, and our state of affairs is “serfdom”.

But instead of being sharecroppers where the master of the plantation tells us how much food we keep, he tells us how much we get to keep of what is our own land and our own labor. And they don’t even have to declare title to our persons, at least not yet, or at least not that we know of. Who knows what collateral our rulers have promised for the debt they made us liable for under the fiction that we consented to all this serfdom?
