Not very high risk: Yes they emit ultraviolet rays, but not same intensity as from sun, . You need to sit under the bulb several hrs and for many many days or years to have some potential effect to get skin cancers (not other serious cancers) which are curable. Worry about tons other ionizing radiation we are constantly bombarded by cell towers, high power lines satellites & so many remote control devices. ...Read more

Its true energy saving light bulb have mercury when we turn them on the mercury escape and mercury cause cancer is this true its offiicial?

Yes, No, unknown but: Compact fluorescent bulb do contain mercury but mercury does not escape unless they are broken. It is not known if mercury causes cancer but it causes other serious problems. But mercury in the bulbs cause cancer-causing uv rays to be emitted from them. They're energy efficient but many react to the type of light emitted. Led's are a better choice. See http://bit.

Doctors say energy saving light bulb have mercury when we turn them on the mercury escape and mercury cause cancer is this true its offiicial?

I don't believe it: Fear of these new bulbs is being promoted by a right-wing news outlet.

Eager to hear what others have to say. ...Read more

Why does my energy level get messed up when we switch to daylight saving time?

Why does my energy level get messed up when we switch to daylight saving time?

Jet lag: Your brain is used to certain light cues to tell your body it's time for bed. When that gets altered, your brain gets confused, and the correct hormones that signal sleep are deranged. It can take a few days to get things "realigned". Jet lag does a similar thing, and takes about an hour per time zone to correct. ...Read more

They work as well...: They work as well as wearing a rubber band, a friendship bracelet, a lucky charm, or any other bracelet or item that makes the person feel better, stronger, more confident, more lucky, more prepared to meet the challenges of the day, etc...
