In an interview with the TG Daily, researcher Oladele Ogunseitan pointed out that one can not ignore possible health problems caused by non-aggressive substances. Researchers at the University of California, USA, say green light bulbs may cause cancer the environment.
“LEDs are targeted as the next generation of lighting devices. But as we try to find products that do not deplete energy resources or contribute to global warming, we have to be vigilant about the risks of toxicity from those marketed as substitutes, “said the researcher.
The research was done using small multicolored Christmas lights along with others used at traffic lights and car lanterns. The finding was troubling: red lights contained up to eight times the allowed lead limit under California state law, raising the risk of cancer “significant.”
The brighter colors presented more problems, and white, although being among the least dangerous, contains high levels of nickel. In addition to cancer, substances found in bulbs can cause other diseases such as neurological damage, kidney disease, hypertension and rashes.
Despite the proven problems, LED bulbs are still not classified as toxic and, according to Ogunseitan, manufacturers could easily reduce the concentration of substances that cause harm to human health.
