I know they will cause the colors of items to fade, collectors are careful
to not display items under fluorescent light.

A list member E-mailed privately to say that his wife has been using
multiple CFL's up close for her sewing and hobby activities - she has
been suffering from skin rashes for which there has been no prior

Now that she is aware that she may be more sensitive than average
to this potentially higher-than-normal UV she is equipped to make
an informed decision to use a different up-close light source - perhaps

So, as a result of this thread, perhaps one person may have discovered
something valuable.  Hard to say but hard to justify ignoring the data
without a closer and more critical examination.
