How much radiation do you get with two 24-inch screen and a MBA facing you every day?

How much radiation do you get with two 24-inch screen and a MBA facing you every day?

I am curious, apparently I got a massive headache after the 2 hours.

I am working with,
Two 24-inch iMac 2012
One 13-inches MBA mid-2011 model

Well, visible light is a form of radiation, so quite a bit.

You don't get any. Maybe you need to turn the brightness down.

Less than what you'd get from being outdoors, at any rate

Unhealthy radiation does not cause headaches. It causes genetic damage (and subsequent death).

Your computer does not emit unhealthy radiation.

Your headaches are almost certainly caused by poor lighting conditions. Your screen brightness should be comparable to the room brightness. If this doesn't fix your problem, every few minutes of computer use, look at something in the distance, ie. out a window.

People in general get loads of radiation on a daily basis in various forms but that doesn't have much to do with large computer displays. This is my personal opinion since I am not a medical professional but it sounds more like eye strain more than ionizing radiation (visible light and EM is pretty much seen as non-ionizing radiation.
