    A summary of the effects presented here is given in the table. The designation "factor present" implies that there is knowledge (from human or animal studies, or both) of a specific factor(s) present in VDU work which may be part of a causal link. The designation "summary statement" gives my conclusions of the relation between VDU work and the various effects; the "state of the art." Suggestions for "additional" health effects have also appeared but so far generally without supporting or suggesting evidence.
