Warning! Which lamps threaten our health?

The LED lighting of V-TAC saves more power than the energy-saving lighting and is not dangerous in case of breaking bulbs.


Incredible as it may sound, the bulbs in the room is responsible to a large extent not only for the tone and mood, but also for our health. Poor-quality artificial lighting could lead to depression, headaches, and a weakened immune system.

According to the German specialist in the problems of the impact of lighting on humans Alexander Vunsch, the presence of mercury in energy-saving bulbs can trigger hormonal changes in the body. Furthermore, although quite low, their ultraviolet radiation provokes dermatological problems in people with increased skin sensitivity, said the chairman of the European Society of Photodermatology prof. John Hawk. Other studies have concluded that phenol and harmful vapours, which are used in the production of economical bulbs, are emitted continuously when the lighting is on.

Led by the presumption that the price is a major criterion in the selection of lighting for home or office, many people prefer compact fluorescent lamps, known in this country as energy-saving models, but isn’t our health and safety in the first place? These bulbs should be sold with detailed instructions on the proper way in which consumers must act, if the product breaks. Then it becomes seriously dangerous, especially for children and pregnant women.

This current message is in relation to supervision and carried out tests on LED floodlights from the State Agency for Metrology and Technical Surveillance – Bulgaria.

The product does not comply with the requirements of the Low Voltage Directive and the relevant European standard EN 60950. The conductors in the cable are too thin and could overheat and cause fire.
