We're constantly being told that compact fluorescent light bulbs (CFL) are better for the environment than older, but what you may not know is that the bulbs may actually be a lot more dangerous for your health.
Incandescent globes will be phased out in November 2009 because they burn on average 80 per cent more energy than the newer bulbs.
Critics claim the CFL light bulbs give off dangerous amounts of radiation and can cause skin disorders and medical conditions a claim that is strongly denied by both industry and medical officials.
