Do incandescent bulbs contain dangerous chemicals?

    I don’t think so.  An incandescent light bulb is composed of a filament (tungsten), a glass casing, which is filled with an inert gas (argon), a base, and wires.  While tungsten has been shown to have some adverse effects on humans and animals, these are relaively minor, and the small amount of tungsten used in a light bulb makes them irrelevant.  Argon is also harmless, unless it is found in such high volumes that it crowds out oxygen.
