||The alleged reproductive hazards of VDUs
||Jan.-Mar. 1987, Vol.1, No.1, p.49-57. 43 ref.
||This paper reviews the available evidence on the alleged reproductive hazards of VDUs. It concludes that it is unlikely that any threat is posed by irradiation. Poor design of the work station and job-related stress may pose a problem for some users. However, these reflect the way in which the VDU is used, and not the VDU per se. It is recognised that anxiety about VDU use needs to be taken into account. Current guidelines on VDU are introduced and briefly discussed.
