Low-energy bulb disposal warning

There's a short piece on the front cover of Today's Daily Telegraph (Sat 5th) which quotes someone as saying that up to 340,000 people in the UK could suffer from Eczema and skin cancer from the new energy saving bulbs.

Good the news is getting out and in plenty of time.

Haven't checked the other papers but imagine there is more coverage.

Maybe we could use this exposure (no pun int) to point up the health links from microwaves?

What never ceases to amaze me is how none of these reporters ever ask "If these devices can do this to God knows how many people, what are they doing to the rest of us?"
