This is a short clip from a community documentary called, Space Games - Rage or Rip Off?  The fillmmakers 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. We may laugh now but eyestrain, carpal tunnel syndrome and other computer-related health effects are well documented. However, to date there has been no confirmed adverse health effects from low level, long-term exposure to computer and TV screens or, more recently, mobile phones.
