Epilepsy 360 decrees: In the News Magazine — CFLs, dirty electricity and epilepsy.

While lighting authorities assure CFLs to be safe to use in homes, people with epilepsy, migraines and Multiple Sclerosis (MS) are raising concerns about experiencing discomfort when using them. A variety of reasons have been postulated, such as flicker rate, mercury vapor or the radio wave frequencies produced by CFLs. However, very little research is available to confirm these effects and influence governments to reconsider their course of action at present.
