numerous times now I've found posts of people warning others to keep their dolls away from fluorescent light, that it is more harmful than sun itself. I...don't get it. My only understanding is that people get this idea from the fact that tanning beds are fluorescent bulbs. But they're not just ANY fluorescent bulbs, they're specially designed tanning bulbs that produce significantly more UVB rays and UVA (UVB being the rays that penetrate our skin and make us tan) Think about it. If all fluorescent bulbs were as horrible as the sun, most of us would have pretty horrific sunburns!! The first time I came across this assumption I did some research online and found that a study of general fluorescent bulbs produce a near harmless amount of UV and that in a 20day span of exposure of a basic (light fixture) fluorescent bulb, you're taking in about an hours worth of direct sunlight. Science says that fluorescent bulbs are literally harmless! And I personally don't think that putting your doll in a tanning bed is going to hurt it drastically either. your doll will not yellow in the same process you tan. Tanning is based on cells reacting in your body and producing melanin. This has NOTHING to do with resin and yellowing which is a chemical reaction causing more rapid oxidation. I tried to research the yellowing of plastics to find out which UV ray (A, B, or C) is the one that is the "problem" and couldn't pull up anything! So please don't chuck your doll in a tanning bed! as it MAY BE the UVB rays that are doing this! This topic is important to me because I lived in a college dorm for 3 years that had fluorescent light and my dolls stayed out. My only doll that noticeably yellowed was the doll that was out of the room more than the other dolls, the one that went out for photos and to meets. This proving that sunlight itself is more damaging than fluorescent exposure (from 8(?) bulbs at least) I'm personally stating that, from my experience and research, this is a severely false rumor that people are throwing around and putting people in heightened fear for no reason. If someone has research or evidence reinforcing the "fluorescent fear" I'd like to see it! I'm severely confused at where this rumor is getting validity from!
