Computer Screens "Making People Sick"

Magnetic radiation from computer visual display units is making office workers and users ill researchers have claimed.

A team based at Reading University in the United Kingdom says symptoms include headaches, dry and itchy eyes, fatigue, depression and back and neck pain. The researchers say that radiation emissions from VDU's accounted for over a third of symptoms blamed on "Sick building syndrome"

The findings are based on an experiment with a device which cuts down VDU emissions from monitors.
