This is a short clip from a community documentary called Space Games – Rage or Rip Off? 

The filmmakers interview two people who share their concerns about prolonged exposure to video games. The first expresses health issues regarding eyesight and the second suggests that low-level radiation may have detrimental effects on children.

These comments may sound extreme or even naive in retrospect but eyestrain, carpal tunnel syndrome and other computer-related health effects are well documented.
