Lupus and those sorts of conditions aren't the only ones effected. Those of us with visual perception disorders are as well. Imagine having to go through life - forever - feeling tired, sick to your stomach, with a headache, seeing flashes of light on paper,etc., when there is really nothing wrong with you other than fluorescent lights. They are the bane of my existence. Stage lights are much better for me than fluorescent.

They may be cost efficient, energy saving - yeah, whatever. They make a lot of us sick.

My wife is the director of a preschool that recently underwent a major renovation. One of her teachers has been complaining of headaches since they moved into the new space. The old space had fluorescent lighting, as does the new space. Is there a difference in the bulbs? I have no doubt she’s right about what’s causing her headaches, but curious as to what they might have changed to cause problems now but not last year?

I don’t know much about fluorescent lighting other than that there are many kinds and makes of the tubes. Have you found one that’s better, or worse, than others.

Many thanks!
