A commercial that is running currently shows a child cheerfully replacing a desk lamp bulb with one of those fluorescent tube lights-and he is holding it by the tubing rather than the base to screw the unit in. Uh oh.

Legislation seems to have no issues with children around this type of mercury-added light tubes.

If I were on the bandwagon to keep mercury from escaping into the wrong place, I think a ban on these type of lamps in the home would be the first thing. Maybe at least a warning about mechanical protection from contact.
