UV, Lupus, Fluorescent Lights - Links

I've noticed that a lot of people are finding my blog by researching eye allergies related to their computer screens and/or fluorescent lights.

Here are some great links that are related to these topics and may help you on your quest for information:

This site has a short article about Compact Fluorescent Lights, followed by reader comments. Several are from people who are negatively effected by CFLs.

This one is a discussion about CFL's impact on those with Meniere's, migraines, Epilepsy and Lupus. Some share helpful alternatives, while others share stories of how they are effected.

If you really want to know how a Fluorescent light works, and about the Ultraviolet Radiation they emit, this site is very helpful.

Hi there ...

I am hoping you can help me rally all the "lupus troops."

March 3, 2009 is the Lupus Foundation of America’s 11th Annual Advocacy Day on Capitol Hill. Even if you cannot physically join us on Tuesday, there are still several things you – and your family and friends – can do to help raise awareness about the seriousness of lupus.

To learn all the easy things you can do from the comfort of your home, please go to http://lfa-inc.blogspot.com/2009/02/even-if-you-cannot-be-in-dc-for-lfas.html

To take it a step further, if you're willing to do so, I'd really appreciate it you would consider posting this information (what you find at the link to my blog) on your blog, and letting all your friends and family know how important this is to the lupus community.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me at davis@lupus.org.

Thanks for your help.

All the best, Wick

For more information on the medical impact of CFLs there is a new web site cflimpact.com which has medical research on it.
