Computers are useful, but they also cause problems. In this IT era, people, especially youths, spend long, extended hours in front of computer screens, also almost every day.

Medical experts says “this is dangerous to users’ health.” The major concern is the fact that radiation from the computer can be dangerous to your eyes. Although computers today are made to discharge low-frequency radiation which may not affect the body immediately, long periods of exposure over 20 –30 years can be harmful.

Some researchers have shown that there are high rates of leukemia, a blood disease, among people who are exposed to magnetic radiation, including that which comes from computers. Some other effects of prolonged computer use can be tiredness, headache, dizziness, anxiety and abnormal respiration.
