Not only are they safe, but having a very narrow "bandwidth" they are percieved to be much brighter. AND if you don't like red, you can use also use YELLOW LEDS. I have been using a set of 35 YELLOW Christmas LEDS for 2 years now and I find yellow is much easier on the eyes. My testing with several brands of B&W papers result in NO fogging even after 10 minutes of exposure. Typical price for a 35 light set is $13 but after the Holliday, can be had for $4 to $7.00. Try 'em, you'll like 'em.
