In Germany there are no warnings regarding to photosensitive epilepsy
and in other countries it might be less known too. I never heard that
any 'averaged healthy' person in Germany had PSE caused by flashing
television, even not that there was a hysteria after they send reports
about PSE.

Btw. the only artist's colours with a health label I own, are from
England, warnings about chemical thingy that in Germany are used as food
colouring. So in England there might be a hysteria, but not in Germany,
those things are less known here.

I really have issues with degassing of some cable jackets. There
shouldn't be degassing for a microphone cable, even if it shouldn't be
unhealthy, it's unpleasant and artist tend to be divas and IMO it's ok
to expect that a cable doesn't smell, a monitor doesn't flare.

I won't use a monitor at 60 Hz.
