Should we protect ourselves from computer and TV screens?
What if the CRT screen turns out to be one of the main culprits of many afflictions of modem civilisation, such as abnormal general fatigue, neuropsychological disorders, increased absenteeism, loss of productivity, declining ability to concentrate and to memorise, aggression and scholastic problems in prepubescent children, predisposition to dyslexia, and lowered spermatogenesis?
Doctors, scientists, politicians, teachers, and parents today worry about the major role played by CRT screens in our daily environment, in particular for children. We live in an age in which the number of satellite, telephone, and cable networks is on the increase and where the computer is king. Despite the rising popularity of the Internet (more readily available to larger segments of the population) and the risks connected to CRT screens, which are recognized by scientists, the possibility of harmful effects is only rarely mentioned, and more often, simply denied.
