Fluorescent contains a small amount of mercury. Careless disposal can affect the ecological system. These studies has prompted most household to switching into CFL during the last few decades which was considered less harmful but still contains fluorescent, thus mercury is still present. The invention of LED has saved us from the long term use of fluorescent
