Are solar panels on your homes bad for long term health?

    Photo-voltaic solar panels are known to have silicon dioxide.  The only dangers solar panels pose is during the manufacturing process, which releases silicon dioxide that can be hazardous to your health.  There are minimal health risks once the solar panels are integrated into your home.

    There is no scientific data to say that solar panels cause a health risk. As the previous person said, there is a risk in the manufacturing process, but once they are installed in your home they should pose you no risk. There are risks associated with the disposal of solar panels, as the toxic chemicals can leach out then. It’s really a matter of balancing out the pros and cons because other sources of energy pollute too, just in a different way. We are constantly working to improve solar energy, so I’m sure they will find a way to make them safer. We just need to continue supporting researchers and not throwing out every green idea just because there is a minimal risk. Solar energy is helping so many people all over the world, including schools in Africa, that I think the benefit outweighs the risk.
