The study recommended that if a compact fluorescent breaks, get children and pets out of the room. Ventilate the room. Never use a vacuum, even on a rug, to clean up a broken compact fluorescent lamps. Instead, use stiff paper such as index cards and tape to pick up pieces, and then wipe the area with a wet wipe or damp paper towel. If there are young children or pregnant woman in the house, consider cutting out the piece of carpet where the lamp broke as a precaution. Place the shards and cleanup debris in a glass jar with a screw top and remove the jar from the house.
In any case i think that eventually lighting will evolve to solid state LED's ... more efficient and nontoxic. I've been playing around with the latest super bright LUXEON Rebels from Phillips.
Problem is they are so small i can't figure out how to solder them into a fixture.
