Oh yeah. Plug in something expensive and sensitive to harmonics exit to one and see what happens. I dare you

And the fact that they are toxic ,cause fires ,’and give off non visible radiation and radio frequencies and hurt people should be enough but I know there will Still be some of you defenders out there for some reason defending the indefnedible - putting dangerous mercury filled lass tubes in our homes

Here is who you are aligning with like it or not

I'm not categorically defending CFL bulbs, as you have accused, so don't suggest I'm a tool of the "mercury purveyors". For the record, I am 100% opposed to any governmental mandates for the use of such bulbs.

I am challenging one specific, indefensible statement that you made.

Do you actually know what "harmonics" are, or is that just a word that you saw on some environmental wacko web site? A properly designed electronic device will not be damaged by the level of RF energy radiated by a CFL bulb. If a device was so poorly engineered that that were the case, it would be driven from the marketplace almost immediately.

For better or worse, we are surrounded by "radio frequencies". Radio stations, TV stations, cell phones, cell phone towers, police and emergency services, WiFi services, radar, light dimmers, wireless everything you can imagine. And, yes, even some LED bulbs that are being touted as the eventual replacement for the CFL.

Virtually every modern electronic device radiates some RF energy, particularly those with switching mode power supplies.

Are you one of those Luddites who wants all of those things eliminated?
