Of possible interest about CFLs.

The Epilepsy360° September 2008 edition is out! To open a PDF, simply click on the edition.  


If you click on the "In brief" part of the Epilepsy Action you will see what is happening with compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) down under.  


p.s.  FYI  sidebar on page 5 on Autism and Epilepsy states that:

AN Australian systematic review showed children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have at least a 10-fold increased risk of developing epilepsy. Among children with ASD, 10– 39 per cent had developed epilepsy by their mid teens or 20s. Even children with higher IQs have a much higher rate of epilepsy than the general population, which is 1 – 2 per cent. Researchers cautioned that more work needed to be undertaken on predictors of long-term outcomes in order to give parents more accurate prognoses and not create unnecessary anxiety.
