Flat Screens May Be Dangerous to Your Health

Recommended Posts

Health alert over flat screen TVs

Workers in factories that make flat screen televisions could suffer long-term health damage, say scientists.

A healthy 30-year-old man developed a serious lung disease after being exposed to a type of metal used to coat the screens.

I listened to a report on NPR yesterday about the high lead content in TV screens... :o The cost of recycling TV's far exceeds the value of the materials extracted, so there are few facilites that specialize in this kind of recycling. Some states like MA have banned disposing of TV's in landfills, which will probably just lead to illegal dumping. Switching over to digital signals might bring about a major crisis as people enmasse chuck out their old tv's in favor of newer models that can display the improved pictures. One possible solution suggested was to mandate manufacturers take back their old products; this is what they are doing in other places.

    • Wait, Burning Man is going online-only? What does that even look like?
      You could have been forgiven for missing the announcement that actual physical Burning Man has been canceled for this year, if not next. Firstly, the nonprofit Burning Man organization, known affectionately to insiders as the Borg, posted it after 5 p.m. PT Friday. That, even in the COVID-19 era, is the traditional time to push out news when you don't want much media attention. 
      But secondly, you may have missed its cancellation because the Borg is being careful not to use the C-word. The announcement was neutrally titled "The Burning Man Multiverse in 2020." Even as it offers refunds to early ticket buyers, considers layoffs and other belt-tightening measures, and can't even commit to a physical event in 2021, the Borg is making lemonade by focusing on an online-only version of Black Rock City this coming August.    Read more...
