Hi Sharon,
  Actually, I didn't state anything, other than I came across some disturbing 
information relevant to the conversation thread and wanted to pass it along for 
others to further research if they choose. 
  Maybe you didn't catch the link at the bottom of my post. It is to an 
extensively documented article with further links and many references:

  You might want to check that out if your actually interested in researching 
the health effects of various forms of artificial lighting.

  I found the linked article at, a commercial/industrial 
site that exists to see lighting systems. The various effects attributed to 
fluorescent lighting were not documented in either the article or in Nathan's 
email. I went looking for original articles with attribution, and couldn't find 
them, either...there was a very simple loop...Nathan linked the site...the site 
claimed effects...clicking on the link for articles documenting these effects 
led back to the original commercial site. I found no mention of peer-reviewed 
journal articles reporting evidence of these problems. Most of the effects were 
qualified with "can" or "may", without reference to studies. Maybe will yield some information. 

The Natural Lighting Company and the Bilbrey Brothers (president, and 
vice-president of marketing and sales), claim 21 years and 15 years of 
daylighting experience respectively. I personally have 61 years of experience 
with daylight, but I'm not selling anything. My requirements for accepting 
something as even a contributing cause of a medical condition are more exacting 
than anything stated by Nathan or by the Bilbrey Brothers. The disposal of used 
fluorescent lights is another subject, and was not the point of the post by 
Nathan, as I read it.
