Which light bulb should I use?

Frequently I get asked which are the safest light bulb.

In short, the old style light bulbs are the best, but they are not always available.

A little history –  Thomas Edison invented the first feasible light bulb in the late 1800’s. That type of bulb was used for more than 100 years and called incandescent light bulbs.
In 2007, the U.S. Federal Government outlawed the future manufacture and importing of most of these bulbs.  They did this for energy savings.

“The U.S. Federal Government started phasing out incandescent light bulbs in 2012, starting with the 100-watt bulb, and then followed by the 75-watt,” explained Melissa Andresko, communications director for lighting-automation company Lutron.

As of January 1, 2014 most of the 60- and the 40-watt bulbs went away.

Now we have 3 choices of light bulbs:

LED & CFL Bulbs

1 – CFL’s – Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs – Worst
2 – LED’s – That are Non-Dimmable – OK
3 – New Halogen Bulbs that screw into light sockets – Best

1 – CFL’s have a number of problems.
Most CFL’s create Wireless & WiFi radiation and Dirty Electricity.

CFL’s have mercury in them and have to be disposed as a hazard waste.

Mercury is very toxic. In fact, it is a neurotoxin, meaning that it harms the brain and nervous system. It is also linked to kidney and liver damage and possibly cancer. Children are especially at risk because their brains and bodies are still developing. Many health effects of mercury can be permanent.

Dentists must also take care to manage their mercury-containing dental waste. Dental offices in Washington State are required to use and maintain a dental amalgam separator.

Washington State has recently added a surcharge of $1.00 for a package of 4 bulbs to cover the cost of disposing this hazard waste.

CFL’s contain so much mercury that the EPA and state environment officials consider them to be a hazard if they break.
They cannot be placed in landfills because thousands of decaying or broken bulbs would cause noticeable mercury contamination.

CFL’s are not allowed to be thrown normal trash.

** Below are the clean-up instructions from the U.S. EPA. **

2 – LED’s tend to be better.   Always buy the Non-Dimmable.
I would recommend that you buy a Dirty Electricity Meter to measure any LED’s you have.
If you don’t have a Dirty Electricity Meter to test the LED’s, purchase NON-Dimmable LED’s.
There are some NON-Dimmable LED’s, though, that still create Dirty Electricity.
ALL Dimmable LED’s will create Dirty Electricity.

3 – New Halogen Bulbs that screw into light sockets.
These new Halogen Bulbs save electricity.
They generate NO Electromagnetic Radiation.
Best option.

4 – ** If you break a CFL bulb in your home, the following are the clean-up instructions from the U.S. EPA:

Before Cleanup

1. Have people and pets leave the room, and avoid the breakage area on the way out.
2. Open a window or door to the outdoors and leave the room for 5-10 minutes.
3. Shut off the central forced-air heating/air conditioning (HVAC) system, if you have one.
4. Collect materials you will need to clean up the broken bulb:
o Stiff paper or cardboard
o Sticky tape (e.g., duct tape)
o Damp paper towels or disposable wet wipes (for hard surfaces)
o Glass jar with a metal lid (such as a canning jar) or a sealable plastic bag(s)

________________________________________
Cleanup Steps for Hard Surfaces
1. Carefully scoop up glass fragments and powder using stiff paper or cardboard and place debris and paper/cardboard in a glass jar with a metal lid. If a glass jar is not available, use a sealable plastic bag.
NOTE: Since a plastic bag will not prevent the mercury vapor from escaping, remove the plastic bag(s) from the home after cleanup.
2. Use sticky tape, such as duct tape, to pick up any remaining small glass fragments and powder. Place the used tape in the glass jar or plastic bag.
3. Wipe the area clean with damp paper towels or disposable wet wipes. Place the towels in the glass jar or plastic bag.
4. Vacuuming of hard surfaces during cleanup is not recommended unless broken glass remains after all other cleanup steps have been taken. [NOTE: It is possible that vacuuming could spread mercury-containing powder or mercury vapor, although available information on this problem is limited.] If vacuuming is needed to ensure removal of all broken glass, keep the following tips in mind:
o Keep a window or door to the outdoors open;
o Vacuum the area where the bulb was broken using the vacuum hose, if available; and
o Remove the vacuum bag (or empty and wipe the canister) and seal the bag/vacuum debris, and any materials used to clean the vacuum, in a plastic bag.
5. Promptly place all bulb debris and cleanup materials, including vacuum cleaner bags, outdoors in a trash container or protected area until materials can be disposed of. Avoid leaving any bulb fragments or cleanup materials indoors.
6. Next, check with your local government about disposal requirements in your area, because some localities require fluorescent bulbs (broken or unbroken) be taken to a local recycling center. If there is no such requirement in your area, you can dispose of the materials with your household trash.
7. Wash your hands with soap and water after disposing of the jars or plastic bags containing bulb debris and cleanup materials.
8. Continue to air out the room where the bulb was broken and leave the HVAC system shut off, as practical, for several hours.
If you have further questions, please call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.

Future Cleaning of Carpeting or Rugs: Air Out the Room During and After Vacuuming
1. The next several times you vacuum the rug or carpet, shut off the Heating & Air Conditioning system if you have one, close the doors to other rooms, and open a window or door to the outside before vacuuming. Change the vacuum bag after each use in this area.
2. After vacuuming is completed, keep the Heating & Air Conditioning system shut off and the window or door to the outside open, as practical, for several hours.

If you have further questions, please call your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222.

Are Smart Meters really SMART ?

Smart Meter

The award-winning documentary Take Back Your Power examines evidence of health & environmental issues, in-home privacy invasions, systemic over-billing, fires and hacking vulnerability.  This documentary can be purchased at their web site.

Additionally, the EMF Safety network writes that all around the world people are reporting WiFi / Wireless radiation is affecting their health. The EMF Safety network has collected many smart meter health complaints. Utilities claim smart meters are safe, and compare them to cell phones. However cell phones, cell towers, WiFi and other wireless devices can also affect your health.   Reducing your Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) exposure can benefit your overall health and wellness.

In Lyon, France on May 31, 2011 ‐‐ The WHO/International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) has classified radiofrequency electromagnetic fields (WiFi / Wireless Radiation) as possibly carcinogenic to humans (Group 2B), based on an increased risk for glioma, a malignant type of brain cancer

List of symptoms:

  • Sleep problems (insomnia, difficulty falling asleep, night waking, nightmares)
  • Stress, agitation, anxiety, irritability
  • Headaches, sharp pain or pressure in the head
  • Ringing in the ears, ear pain, high pitched ringing
  • Concentration, memory or learning problems
  • Fatigue, muscle or physical weakness
  • Disorientation, dizziness, or balance problems
  • Eye problems, including eye pain, pressure in the eyes,
  • Cardiac symptoms, heart palpitations, heart arrhythmias, chest pain
  • Leg cramps, or neuropathy
  • Arthritis, body pain, sharp, stabbing pains
  • Nausea, flu-like symptoms
  • Sinus problems, nose bleeds
  • Respiratory problems, cough, asthma
  • Skin rashes, facial flushing
  • Urinary problems
  • Endocrine disorders, thyroid problems, diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Changes in menstrual cycle
  • Hyperactivity or changes in children’s behavior
  • Seizures
  • Recurrence of cancer
  • And more

Many homeowners are unaware that Smart Meters were installed in most homes, businesses, and schools throughout the U.S.

These devices produce high levels of WiFi / Wireless Radiation and Dirty Electricity.

If you want to measure WiFi / Wireless / RF radiation on your own, I have found that this meter is the easiest to use:

https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/wirelessrf/

To measure Dirty Electricity, this meter is very easy to use as well:

https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/dirty-electricity-meter/

In some areas customers have the option of putting the old analog meter back on homes, businesses, and schools. Putting back the previous meter is normally called the “Opt-Out” program.  Consider yourself fortunate if you do have this choice.

You will have to call your local Electrical Utility Company to find out if this is available to you.

Below is information on Nevada’s Opt-Out Program.

To Opt-Out, call Nevada Energy at 702-402-4273 in Southern Nevada or 1-888-559-9744 in Northern Nevada.  Have your account number ready when you call so that Nevada Energy can schedule your Opt-Out appointment.

In Southern Nevada there is a one-time set-up fee of $52.86 and a monthly recurring fee of $8.72.  In Northern Nevada there is a one-time set-up fee of $52.44 and a monthly recurring fee of $8.72.  The fees will appear on your bill as a “non-standard meter charge.”  These are the fees as of 2016.

Only customers of record (the person whose name is on the bill) with Nevada Energy are authorized to participate in the program.

Participation in the Opt-Out Program is limited to 12,000 electric customers in Southern Nevada, 4,500 electric customers in Northern Nevada and 4,500 gas customers in Northern Nevada.  Participation is on a first-come, first-served basis.

Opt-Out today!

Do It Yourself

Do It Yourself

We often get the questions:

Can anyone do this?

What background do I need?

We have taken all of the scientific research and techniques and have boiled them all down into an exclusive, one-of-a-kind, and easy-to-use program that anyone can use to reduce the Electromagnetic Radiation exposure of their family, children, and even their pets.

According to The Cadwallader Protocol, the proprietary solution only available on StopDirtyElectricity.com,

https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/cadwallader-protocol/

you will measure all 4 sources of Electromagnetic Radiation:

  1. Magnetic Radiation
  2. Electric Radiation
  3. Wireless / WiFi Radiation (also called RF or Microwave Radiation)
  4. Dirty Electricity

We have taken great lengths to research the current meters available to determine the easiest meters to use at the best price.

We have also put together over 45 videos which are used in conjunction with The Cadwallader Protocol. These videos are mostly 2 to 4 minutes in length.  The first video in each module will show you how to use each meter.  The following videos will then show you how to measure every room in your home with that meter. We also have videos that show hazards  outside your home that may be bleeding into your home.  We have put the videos on-line in an exclusive Membership Logon on

https://stopdirtyelectricity.com/

Any device:

  • iPhone or Cell Phone,
  • iPad or Tablet or
  • Kindle

can access the videos from the room you are currently in.

 

As part of The Cadwallader Protocol, we have also included an Audit Report. This Audit Report has been developed after surveying all of the available techniques for measuring Electromagnetic Radiation. It lists all of the rooms and items in each room that could cause an issue.  We wanted make sure you did not miss any items.

These video modules cover:

  • Each room in the home
  • Items in a home that could be in any room,
  • Home Office and Personal Electronic Devices, and
  • Items outside your home that could cause issues.

Most importantly, we have listed the most up-to-date Safety Values for each type of Electromagnetic Radiation:

  1. Magnetic Radiation
  2. Electric Radiation
  3. Wireless / WiFi Radiation (also called RF or Microwave Radiation)
  4. Dirty Electricity

With these Safety Values you can then reduce the Electromagnetic Radiation to be within the Safety Values.

There are very easy ways you can reduce Electromagnetic Radiation in each and every video.

Very important, if you don’t have the meters we have suggested, please send an email to:

Support@StopDirtyElectricity.com

so we can provide the Safety Values for your meters.  Meters measure in different units, so it is imperative that you have the correct Safety Values for the meters you are using.

Why not start today in reducing your Electromagnetic Radiation exposure of your family, children, and pets.

What is holding  you back?

Welcome to Stop Dirty Electricity

Welcome to Stop Dirty Electricity

Bill CadwalladerHey, this is Bill Cadwallader with StopDirtyElectricity.com.

I have many things to chat with you about Electromagnetic Radiation.

You say, what is Electromagnetic Radiation?

This harmful radiation is caused by our modern day lifestyle and the myriad of electronics that surround us today.

We will be discussing the sources of this radiation and how you, in most cases, can reduce over 90% of this radiation by taking some simple, easy-to-do steps to protect your home, family, kids, environment and yes, even your pets – please don’t forget your pets.

So stay tuned.   If you find it helpful, please share this with your friends.

The first radiation is Electric.

110_F_53714148_DeHCTxTYusZbvFt0y59uKVLeMKXvXpVa

This Electric Radiation is now present in almost all homes.  A major source of Electric Radiation is the wiring in your walls and any visible wires.We can reduce the effect of this radiation with a few, easy steps.

Recently we did an home audit for a couple where the man was very skeptical.

When I followed up with the wife a few days later, she had to admit, she had the best night’s sleep – in as long as she could remember! The next time I spoke with her, her husband – you remember the skeptic – had to admit, he couldn’t remember when he had slept so well.

Boy, am I happy to hear this common result again, and again.

Another type is Magnetic Radiation.

Magnetic Radiation is produced any time electricity is flowing through a wire.

Many articles have been written about Magnetic Radiation and the effects are normally reduced just by moving 2 to 6 feet away.

A third type of radiation is Wireless / WiFi / RF radiation. This is caused by many modern electronics like cell phones, tablets, baby monitors, cell towers, etc.

box risks

If you’re not using a wireless electronic device then just turn it off or put it into airplane mode turned ON and Bluetooth & WiFi turned OFF.

The free report –

10 Things You can do NOW to Minimize Radiation Exposure in your HOME

  • deals with quick and easy ways to reduce your exposure to Wireless / WiFi / RF radiation.

Finally, the 4th type of Electromagnetic Radiation is termed Dirty Electricity.

110_F_9699481_JxTADtySTmkBNiWScMH3WTsDk5iTOQLX

It is sad, but La Quinta Middle School had off-the-chart high Dirty Electricity levels.  Unfortunately, 16 teachers had 18 cancers at the school and several have died.

I know one teacher personally, she said the very day she started, she found out that one teacher had died of cancer and 2 others had cancer. After teaching there for 3 years, she realized nothing was going to be done and she moved on to a different school.

And if that is not bad enough, at last count, we know up to 37 students attending that school who developed cancer starting in their 20’s – with one student at age 15.

We will be discussing all of these radiations and how to get rid of them on this site.
