Obama’s eco-friendly light bulbs likely the source causing reported health problems
A professor in the United Kingdom is claiming that LED light bulbs, made popular under policies that pushed consumers away from incandescent light bulbs in 2007, are causing headaches and creating feelings of dizziness.
According to a report from the Daily Mail, Professor Arnold Wilkins of Essex University’s psychology department said that the manner in which LED lightbulbs save energy also causes onlookers irritation, and even headaches and dizziness.
In order to reduce total energy output, LED lightbulbs dim by 100 percent, turning on and off imperceptibly hundreds of times a second. But this “flickering” could be responsible for a disorienting effect.
