LightAware believes that banning incandescent lighting is unjust because such bans outlaw safe products and enforce a move to untested lighting technologies, none of which are safe for everyone (eg new fluorescent and LED).
These lights can affect the skin, the eyes, and the nervous system. The people affected include those with conditions such as autism, lupus, and migraine, as well as people who have no known condition.
Because of this ban people across the world who are unable to tolerate fluorescent and LED lighting are suffering pain, illness and social exclusion.
LightAware calls for all bans on incandescent lighting to be lifted until such time as a safe alternative can be found.
