Hi!  I just read this article and was taken aback!  The flickering of the new "green" flourscent lighting may be giving people migraines, seizures (if you are epileptic), and other problems.  I thought everyone should know this.  Here is the link to the article that I read.

Thank you so much for the info.  I had been thinking about buying some of those bulbs.  You probably saved me from having more seizures and migraines.

Thank you for posting this! I was considering purchasing these bulbs for my home. Yesterday, at my office (thankfully not in my room), I noticed that one of the lamps had a "green" bulb and, sure enough, it was flickering. I am very photosensitive - in fact a repetitive camera flash induced a partial complex seizure in September. After reading your article, I will avoid these at all costs. I appreciate the information.

Again, thank you!
