The Feds' Poison Gift to Your Children

We've hammered on this, for good reason.

The Germans did a bit of work on Compact Flourescent bulbs.


Levels of toxic vapour around smashed eco-bulbs were up to 20 times higher than the safe guideline limit for an indoor area, the study said.

It added that broken bulbs posed a potential health risk to pregnant women, babies and small children

One might quibble over the definition of "safe guideline limit."

But Your Government has acted to FORCE you to purchase items which can poison your children.

Where are the "lead paint" litigators? Where is "PolitiFart"? Herbie the Sleeping Senator? (And yes, I KNOW that the feckless GWB signed the law.)

I don't recall needing a HazMat kit to clean up my incandescent bulbs when they broke.
