CRT Users Beware!

“Many people are still using CRT monitors set at 60 Hz or 85 Hz around the world….What they don’t realise is that these refresh levels have side-effects of inducing tiredness, yawning, short-sightedness and the most destructive of which is tooth grinding at night. Unstable images on a CRT can induce tooth grinding subsconciously at night, since an unstable flashing image is disturbing to the brain’s nervous system.”

“Tooth griding permanently destroys your teeth and you can’t get back lost enamel tissue. Restoration of damaged teeth is extremely expensive, more than your monitor and your damaged teeth will have an effect on your health, as teeth is the major organ of healthy digestion. Digestion begins in the mouth as the proper breakdown of food. If you can’t digest your food properly, then you will not last long on this Earth.”
“New CRT TVs (not monitors) are widely advertised at being 100 Hz.”

“Why we are still stuck at a so-called safety standard of 85 Hz, which still induces the CRT side-effects as mentioned above is amazing….The bottom line is to see if you can set your CRT to at least 100 Hz and take to regular breaks from the screen….Breaks are important for LCD users as well, since human eyes were not designed to stare and focus at a light source for a long time.”
