- Plasma
- New CRT’s
 - Any others






Assuming ambient light, settings, distance-to-size ratio e.t.c. are the same; rank the types of monitors generally for health and eyes (combined).





By ‘health’ I mean which is the least unhealthy for the brain (This Is What Too Much Screen Time Does To You) and skin (Lights off: is the glare from your computer really ageing your skin?) E.g. In terms of the type of light). By ‘eyes’ I meant which is the least damaging to eyes.



An example of what I mean by unhealthy light is blue light. Studies have been done with blue light and monkeys (which obviously have over 90% the same DNA sequence and respond very similarly). 


A question could be: Assuming all else is constant (and if different types of monitors generally emit different amounts of blue light); how much blue light do these types of monitors generally emit?




I am looking for the health and eye damage of types of monitors to buy one of them.
