The (non-professional) jury is still out on 3Dâ€™s health effects. When I spoke to an ophthalmologist for my original review he noted that there is no way to damage your eyes permanently by looking at the 3DSâ€™ screen. Thatâ€™s all well and good, but in todayâ€™s litigious and hysterical parenting atmosphere, we are sure to find a few screamers claiming that the 3DS struck their little Rupert blind. If youâ€™re worried, donâ€™t get the 3DS for your kids. Itâ€™s as simple as that.
I believe doctors endorsed smoking when smoking was thought to be safe.
