Eyesight and Neural Damage from Electronics

  1. Nov 19, 2009 #1

    I am new in this forum, but I have a question about Plasma televisions. I was told that they have an adverse effect on eyesight. Can anyone elaborate? I tried looking on www.altavista.com for Journals and Information on the medical aspect, but there is nothing but foolishness about it not having any effect. Let me know if you know of anything, please.

    Doing a quick search on pubmed, which is the database for credible medical related journals, turns up nothing. Did you ask whoever told you it has an adverse effect what THEIR source was? Otherwise, I can only assume it's just some myth or rumor.
