Energy-saving light bulbs might be good for the environment but they can fry your skin, a new study claims.
Researchers at Stony Brook University in New York State examined the impact of the efficient compact fluorescent bulbs – or CFL bulbs – on human skin cells prompted by a similar study undertaken in Europe.

Across the United States, Americans are celebrating 236 years of independence with backyard barbeques, family gatherings and, of course, fireworks.
