I have recently completed a study which looked at the effects of energy saving light bulbs on people who suffer from lupus.
Energy saving lightbulbs emmit amounts of uva and uvc rays, especially the spiral one. Any energy light saving bulbs emmit the rays but the ones not encased are the worst ones for it. Although I did not have a physical reaction to the lights many in the sample test of lupus patients did.
I have been told that when the stdu is complete the result will be put on lupus uk website, and that there is the hope that by taking the findings to downing street we can get the price of LED lights lowered as these retail at roughly £30 and are energy saving without the harmful rays.
I would advise anyone with lupus who has energy saving lights to look at replacing them with encased or different lightbulbs.
