While no conclusive evidence has yet been found, many experts say there are potential health dangers, including an increased risk of cancer, from exposure to non-ionizing radiation emitted by some VDTs (as well as microwave communication equipment, microwave ovens, television and radio transmitters, electric wiring, electric blankets, and other devices). These experts recommend that people who spend several hours a day in front of a VDT take the following precautions:

A) Test your computer (and other household devices) for non-ionizing radiation emmissions. B) Have annual eye exams.

C) Pregnant women should work no more than 20 hours a week in front of a VDT.

D) Take 15 minute breaks and reduce VDT screen glare as recommended earlier in this section.
