Yellowing bubbles! Probably been talked about numerous times before so please forgive me if I'm going over well trodden ground.
I've so many things to ask so I hope members don't mind if I do so via questions:
1: When was it first noticed that bubbles were turning yellow?
2: Is it inevitable that once a bubble starts yellowing then it will continue to get darker until it is brown?
3: Is it safe to say that if a bubble hadn't started to yellow after say 15 years then it will never go yellow?
4: What seems to be the contributing environmental factors that contribute to yellowing - heat, moisture, cold etc.?
I know what I am asking is along the lines of: "How long is a bit of string", but I would be interested to know what collectors think.
Thanks in advance.

Sorry but that's just scaremongering. Where's the evidence?
