Petition Summary

The petitioner describes his medical condition through which he suffers negative health consequences from exposure to artificial lighting, in particular LED lighting, apparently caused by the flicker effect of such lights. The petitioner calls for the European Parliament to take measures to prevent the exclusive use of LED lighting across public spaces and for public services, including transport, in order to protect people suffering from this condition and enable them to live normally. The petitioner also calls for a revision of the conditions by which the efficiency of electric lighting is measures, and that energy efficiency should not be the only criterion in determining the life cycle of a product.
