Do your bit change to LED
 
after doing tests i realized that CFLs produce a huge surge in dirty electricity of about 100 GS (normal should be under 30 GS, so when you turn on CFLs it becomes 130), using the Stetzerizer Meter (http://www.amazon.com/Graham-Stetzer-GS-M300-A-Stetzerizer-Microsurge/dp/B002P4HL10), while the Philips  LEDs I bought recently from Home Depot (https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/97aetYKGisg) produce none of that.  I was blown away how much CFLs pollute. 

WHY avoid CFLs?  They are toxic from many points of view, see below.  Governments should ban them for the sake of public health.

i just bought 24 LED light bulbs (and replaced many CFLs) for only $2.5 each from Home Depot (they have a sale now), click on each of the two pictures to see the 2700K temperature, the 800 lumens,  8.5W (equivalent of a 60W old incandescent).  These will  look a little like incandescent bulbs from the outside, but they are LEDs and use a lot less electricity, produce no UV (unlike CFLs who produce a lot of it ► https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=21TJYkhP8gQ), and far less dirty electricity than CFLs (many CFLs cost $2.5 too).  CFLs also can emit mercury vapors (when broken and even when not broken, due to manufacturing defects) which are known to cause a host of problems such as memory loss, Alzheimer, Parkinson, paralysis, etc.  LEDs used to cost 10-20 dollars each 3 years ago, and many of them still do. 

Let's go green, go LED, minimize waste (incandescents and CFLs need replacement much more often 5-20 times more often) replace the toxic CFLs and ultra-inefficient incandescents, save thousands of dollars long term in electricity and health costs.

I recommend always buying warm white bulbs (2700K) - not daylight ones (6500K is too high temperature with too much blue light) -  as during the evenings in the winter you will expose yourself to TOO MUCH BLUE LIGHT (see https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/JGFGWvy2Cps for the blue light reduction methods), and this can cause eye damage and also lead to insomnia and other issues.  No mater what you like LED or halogen, go warm/soft white, not daylight. :)

 Dirty electricity from CFLs is harmful and since LEDs are now on sale in many stores (just ask for the cheapest LED bulb when you get to Home Depot, etc) and almost as cheap as CFLs (2-3 dollars per lightbulb), switching to them makes far more sense - since you save electricity too.  Just 3 years ago LEDs that cheap were science fiction.

There are filters you can buy on amazon and at anti-emf pollution online stores to reduce that dirty electricity in your house, like http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00JM8POXE.  

Having headaches, depression, health issues and such?  Could be the CFL lights at home, or fluorescent lights at work or dirty appliances that mess up with your electrical fields in your house, even plumbing can cause sometimes unhealthy EMF fields and there are ways to measure and mitigate that.  

More on CFL UV pollution at https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/ENXuiiYAdVP

For the many advantages of LEDs versus CFLs please see this:

1. An LED bulb can use 50-70% of the energy of a CFL to produce same lumens.

2. LED lasts up to 10 times longer than a CFL. 

3. LED lighting generates less heat than a CFL.

4. LEDs do not contain Mercury or other toxic heavy metals that can leak, or need to be disposed in very special ways to avoid contamination of landfills, etc.

5. A high rate of on-off cycling drastically shortens the life span of a CFL. An LED on the other hand is unaffected by on – off cycling. This is the reason LED devices are preferred for traffic lights.

6. CFL lamps take long to achieve full brightness. An LED bulb on the other hand achieves full brightness at the flick of a button.

7.  UV light attracts insects.  With virtually no UV emissions, LEDs do not attract bugs, insects.  UV from CFLs causes eye damage, skin cancer and other health issues. 

I TESTED THE LED BULBS i bought:

LEDs won over CFLs big time:  Results of testing 3 types of Lightbulbs, some appliances, a cell phone, a smart meter, a wi fi router with Trifield 100 XE Meter for electric, magnetic and radio frequency fields - see ranges and frequencies of the meter at the end of the post

Trifield meter ► http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00050WQ1G

I tested a normal LED (I bought this LED from Home Depot see my post about it at https://plus.google.com/+AlexP/posts/97aetYKGisg) made by Phillips, a normal CFL by EcoSmart, a normal Incandescent. Nothing fancy, just things anyone would buy. 


1.  MAGNETIC FIELD

MAGNETIC FIELD:  LEDs  produce 1.2 Mgauss at 10 inches, 3 Mgauss at 5 inches, 19 mGauss at 2 inches,   50 Mgauss at 1 inch.

MAGNETIC FIELD:  Incandescent had background levels at any distance

MAGNETIC FIELD:  CFLs produce 1.3 mGauss at 10 inches, 3 Mgauss at 5 inches, 20 mGauss at 2 inches,  50 mgauss at 1 inch.  

Conclusion:  LEDs and CFLs produce the same magnetic fields.

2.  RADIO FREQUENCY FIELD

RADIO FREQUENCY FIELD:  LEDs produce no RF, so a lot of youtube videos testing other brands must have gotten really bad LEDs from many years ago.  Mine don't have any RF at any distance which was a shock to me.  THANK YOU PHILIPS FOR MAKING TRULY THE BEST LEDs people have tested on youtube or google+!  :)

RADIO FREQUENCY FIELD:  CFLs emit 0.2 mwatt/cm2  at half inch, which is dangerous, but if you go 1 inch away, nothing.

RADIO FREQUENCY FIELD:   Incandescent had background levels at any distance

CONCLUSION:  LEDs are as safest and cheapest long term, avoid CFLs.

Just so you know, a phone emits about 0.2-0.4 mwatt/cm2 at half inch on a routine basis, every few seconds while not in airplane mode.  No RF in airplane mode of course.  Also, the smart meter on my house emits far less RF than many smart meters and far, far less than a phone, the pulse to the substation occurs far less often than the cell signal to the cell tower, about about 100 times less often.  When such a signal is made by the smart meter, i get about 15 times lower RF signal.  So contrary to what some say, smart meters are not that bad  as far as RF.  But there is a very strong magnetic field around a smart meter, so never put it near a bedroom, always near garage or somewhere 6-10 feet from a living space, since many people who slept near their electrical panel got brain cancer.  The wifi router emits a VERY STRONG RF FIELD going off scale all the time, every second, so Wi fi routers are a really bad idea, emit far more RF than cell phones.  When I turned off wi fi at http://192.168.0.1/ i got no RF pollution almost.  So, if you got wired internet, you can also go to your browser at 192.168.0.1 and login with your username and password (change password to make your network more secure - don't leave the factory default) and turn off wi fi;   i strongly suggest you turn off wi fi since it was shown to affect people's brain function.  The router was more than 100 times stronger than the smart meter.  Try turn off Wi fi routers in the house and all public buildings and use wired connections and avoid public Wi fi if you want to avoid frying your brain.  Wi fi is WHY FRY your brain:), lol.   If you are a teacher, feel free to be against wi fi, and ask for wired connections - the students' health and performance will be better, and you will be seen as a more competent teacher.   Li Fi is much safer, but we are not there yet.  :)  

3.  ELECTRIC FIELD

ELECTRIC FIELD: CFLs 30 v/m  at 12 inches, 1000 v/m at 10 inches, off scale at 8 inches.

ELECTRIC FIELD:  LED  nothing at 12 inches or even 5 inches,  1 inch you get 20 v/m, which is very very little since harmful effects start at about 500 v/m.

ELECTRIC FIELD:   Incandescent had background levels at any distance

CONCLUSION:  It's smart to avoid CFLs, they emit an electric field far too strong at 10 inches.  That's why all the headaches and off-scale on dirty electricity meters.

The only advantage of the incandescent is that it has no magnetic fields, but you have to be really close to LED to harm yourself, like 5 inches away for 6 hours a day for a year or more.  Nobody is that close to an LED or any type of bulb usually, even if you use a desk lamp.  You often get more magnetic field from a monitor anyway.  Be aware to not sit closer than a foot from a monitor as the magnetic field is getting to 1-2 mgauss.  My monitor emits 1.5 mGauss at 6 inches, but background at 1 foot.  It's good to be 2-3 feet from a desktop monitor ideally.  Some electrical appliances can emit very strong magnetic fields when they are turned off, but plugged in, if you are within 5 inches of them.  

However, with small CFLs, they produce dirty electricity that contaminate your whole house and the fluorescent long tubes are a complete disaster, their magnetic fields at 2-3 feet at 3 Mgauss, which is too high and they produce even more dirty electricity.  So, never use fluorescent tubes if you can at home.  At work, be 3-4 feet away from them.

LEDs use 5-10 times less power than incandescents, and last 10-20 times longer than incandescents, cost just about 2 times more when on sale (so if you buy it once you still save a lot of money, since you don't need replace them every 12 months), so you can save your money and the planet from a lot of pollution by switching to LEDs, especially since they are on sale now.
