Computers Kill

Submitted by on April 23, 2008 – 3:28 am One Comment

Computers kill. That’s right: according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, some 2,600 die every year in car accidents because they got distracted by their cell phone, a GPS gadget, an MP3 player, or a PDA. In fact, the leading cause of death among Americans is heart attack; stress and obesity are the leading causes of heart attacks; and computer technology is one of the leading causes of both stress and obesity. US Department of Labor reports that Repetitive Stress Injury accounts for 60% of all job-related illnesses, costing businesses some $20 billion annually. Computers are the leading cause of Repetitive Stress Injuries such as carpal-tunnel syndrome. According to AMA, computers are responsible for nearly 63% of all vision disorders. This is why computer software is so buggy: experienced programmers are overweight, stressed out, half-blind and can’t move their wrists.

    I currently have a very painful headache right in my forehead area. The computer screen kills it, but I am dealing. What is the cause, and how do I fix it (other than medication)?
