Subject: Carcinogenic monitors

A number of friends and colleagues have approached me lately to warn me
of impending death from my close association with computer monitors.
Apparently, the Apple Color 12" monitor is especially bad in this regard
-- I take it that we're discovering that low-level radiation from such
monitors is carcinogenic?

In all seriousness, if anyone has or can refer me to CONCRETE information
on recent studies, I would be grateful. Especially as I am facing an
additional installation of four double-page monitors on a Mac network,
I need to know if I am inadvertently contributing to my students'
health risks.

Thanks in advance,
