||Are there harmful health effects of radiation from VDUs?
||Gesundheitsschńden durch Strahlung am Bildschirm? [in German]|
||1984, No.101, p.33-42. Illus. 13 ref.
||Critical study of the scientific literature on the health effects of radiation from visual display units (VDUs); the nature of electromagnetic radiation, measurement of x-rays, biological effects of ionising radiation, types of radiation produced by VDUs, x-ray emissions by VDUs. A comparison with naturally occurring radiations demonstrates that the risk from radiation produced by VDUs is actually lower than the risk from radiation due to natural sources. There is no scientific justification for claiming that radiation from VDUs can have harmful consequences for health.
