Using compact fluorescent lamps (energy saving lamps) is of no concern from a radiation protection point of view

The use of compact fluorescent lamps for general lighting in homes is safe in terms of radiation protection. Studies currently available both on the emitted optical radiation and the electrical and magnetic fields imply that exposures of individuals are below the internationally recommended limit values for health protection even with short distances between lamps and users.
