With thermometers, fluorescent bulbs & energy saving CFLs (compact fluorescent lamps) --- Short of calling the Haz-mat team to your home when one has broken it's important to be aware of the "Clean-up" protocol and the effects these mercury containing household items have on our health and environment.
Investigate Magazine warns
"The real cost is not one light bulb breakage, but how badly affected homes will be after 20 years of amateur attempts to clean up one of the deadliest neurotoxins on the planet. A generation of children crawling on mercury-infested carpets would give new meaning to the phrase, "dumbed-down".
Check out page 4 of our March issue of LIFE-STYLE magazine for guidelines on properly "cleaning-up" and disposing of these light bulbs. Be patient the magazine will load in a moment or so.
