That is the big lie. The guvmint acts as if the stupid CFL is another technology. Because the tubes have been sround since the 1940 s
Everyone is used to them and doesn’t think twice.

Mercury content. GAS. VAPOR Not some small drop of liquid

4 ft. T8 ( skinny , newer). 20-40 mg

4 ft T12. (Fatter. Older ). 40-70 mg or more

CFl. Depends on size. Curly 13w. 10 -18 mg. utube. 13 -15 mg
Larger Cfl. 20-35 mg

Note that most lamps are made in China. No regulation. Putting more Hg in makes lamp brighter and last longer. Content varies widely

Max exposure for human = .0002 mg. / m3

Lamps conc is approx. 100 Billion times this max exposure limit

Hg vapor is odorless colorless and HEAVY. It never goes away

After 70 years of these things you still didn’t know that till I just told you

That’s how TRULY EVIL these things are and to boot our guvmint
For covering this up

I sold flourescent lamps for 6 years. Among other electrical stuff. There was always a barrel in the warehouse where the broken tubes were kept. The rep would re-imburse us.
