Do you sometimes sneeze,
develop headaches, red, irritated eyes or allergy flair ups when working
on a computer or watching TV? Static electricity has been overwhelmingly
linked to health concerns among frequent computer and TV users.
Millions of particles of
positively (+) charged sub -10 micron particles are propelled by the high
electrostatic voltage (produced as a by product) of the cathode ray (picture) tube in
computer monitor and TV's. Unfortunately the recipient of these particles are typically
the negatively (-) charged user's face, eyes and bronchial system.
your finger across your Monitor or TV screen, is it dusty?
According to recent studies, the same amount of dust that
forms on the screen will form on a grounded metal plate (simulating a user) when
placed a few feet from the TV / Monitor. The UltraStat FST for Computers and ClearView for
Televisions has been laboratory tested and endorsed by optometrists and allergists
worldwide. The following excerpt is compliments of Wolfson Electrostatics
(UK): It is well known
that electrostatic forces can be used to precipitate airborne dust particles from the
atmosphere and an example of this precipitation effect can be found in almost every home.
Television sets generate high voltages which set up an electric field between the TV set
and surrounding surfaces. This electric field influences dust particles in the air and
tends to deposit them on the screen, the TV housing and any nearby surfaces. It is
quite common for a very fine layer of dust to accumulate on the screen of a TV after it
has been switched on for a few hours. If this dust were analyzed it would almost
certainly contain fragments of dust mite fecal pellets - a material, which has been
identified as one of the main asthma allergen carriers.
