I was just wondering, the ceiling of my office is quite low, thus the 6 fluorescent light bulbs around me are quire close to me, I am exposed to it 9 hours a day, is there any health hazards associated with it? I don't feel any headache or eye strain all the time, but this happens sometimes.

That also lead me into asking myself, I am facing 2 LCD monitor everyday at close range for 9 hours a day, anyone knows is this bad for our health ?

Just say its bad, at the rate of your description. Too much oso no good, too little oso no good. Tough world to find ideal situation. I don't think there's a definitive answer to this.

If there are double fluoro, you might want to take out one each.

Not sure how old you are but as you get older.... less on the computer helps... at least rest every few minutes... or try stare at a distance... do other non computer stuff. ... worst if your lcd is small.

If the worry is radiation,
I don't think there are any reason to be worried.

As for LCD monitors, they should be safe.
You would be worried if you are facing CRT (cathode ray tube) monitors which actually transmit radiation to the screen. Even with CRT, the newer models have TCO ratings which declare their safety levels of exposure.
