Relatively recently appeared in our lives as comfortable and economical energy-saving lamps. They have several advantages over conventional incandescent: duration of use, cost, lack of heating elements.
However, few people know that cheap lamps are extremely harmful to our health. The fact that they are arranged quite peculiar: the main stream of light they generate a special substance – phosphor. It is usually applied to the inner walls of tubes.
Often, these light sources are in the form of a tube or a snake. Inside economical lampfilled with mercury vapor and inert gas – argon. Under the influence of electricity mercury vapors begin to emit ultraviolet rays, which, in turn, stimulates the phosphor to the radiation beam.
The unit of energy-saving light bulbs carefully studied the German professor, head of department of the hospital somnological St. Hedwig in Berlin Dieter Kunz. He held a series of investigations that result came to the conclusion that the cold light emitted by these lights causes a variety of sleep disorders .
Also Professor Kunz believes that economical bulbs adversely affect the entire body, “part of their use can lead to a variety of pathologies, ranging from dysfunction of the digestive tract and ending with cardiovascular disease, including myocardial infarction, psychiatric disorders, and depression.
But the main thing – that people who are employed on shift work, are at increased risk of tumor diseases, and this applies to all forms of medicine known tumors. “
It is also important to note that cheap lamps are the source of electromagnetic radiation of radio-frequency range. This is another reason to abandon the use of such light sources.
