CONCLUSION

Radiation Emissions

There has been discussion in the past regarding possible adverse health effects from electro-magnetic radiation emission. However, the amounts of UV and other higher frequency radiations emitted from VDU's have been found to be very low and do not appear to carry any measurable health risk. Some investigators have been concerned with the lower frequency (radio, VLF and ELF) radiations associated with VDU's. Whether or not long term exposure to these low level types of radiation can produce adverse health effects, is still an issue of controversy.
