Hello , my name is Jack
To answer that question , those screw on fluorescent bulbs contain between 3 and 5 milligrams of mercury .
Typical old fashion thermometer had between 500 and 3000 MG of that stuff
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
Are there any toxic emissions from the bulb ?
Expert:  Jack replied 2 years ago.
No , they are sealed and unless broken , the mercury will not affect anything outside the lamp
