Ya, I was trying to check on that. I've never heard of such a thing, but I suppose its possible? The idea that it keeps the blood from clotting and
that is the reason for slowed healing doesn't make much sense, because as long as it wasn't clotting, it would continue bleeding, and that would
probably keep it from getting infected. But, if phosphors somehow do keep it from healing it would certainly increase the likelihood of infection.
Regardless of what happened in this rare instance, the risk of CFL bulbs is extremely low and no more significant than any other light bulb. If
someone steps on a light bulb and gets tons of glass cuts, there are numerous risks involved and some people are going to end up with infections. As
the other poster said, people have died from simple fishing hook accidents.
