Use of a keyboard or mouse may be linked to serious injuries or disorders.

When using a computer, as with many activities, you may experience occasional discomfort in your hands, arms, shoulders, neck, or other parts of your body. However, if you experience symptoms such as persistent or recurring discomfort, pain, rthrobbing, aching, tingling numbness, burning sensation, or stiffness. DO NOT IGNORE THESE WARNING SIGNS, PROMPTLY SEE A QUALIFIED HEALTH PROFESSIONAL.
...

So yeah, if you experience these symptoms, STOP computing immediately and check up with doctor as soon as possible! ;)

OMG... are you ok McFly?! Someone call 911! Or 999 if you're in England. XD j/k

Everyone, STOP using your keyboard and mouse immediately. It is imperative for the health agency to conduct thorough research to prove their safeness, before anyone should continue to use them!

I hate touch pad, too. It's a chore to drag things around.

Joking aside. While extensive use of keyboard or mouse in a long run can cause some stress injury on wrist and hand, I do NOT think it is enough to put a health warning label on them. Especially, I think the label shown here is exaggerating some of the facts too. Hence all these jokes and sarcasm in my previous posts.

For me keyboard does nothing harm to me, though mouse does cause some discomfort to my wrist and hand when used for a long time. But it is not just because computer use, I over use that hand on other activities as well, such as driving.

Many other products when use extensively can cause similar injuries. Many more products and activities that are even more serious and dangerous than keyboard, mouse and computing. It is just that we are living in a society that they (companies) have to put a stupid warning label there just to cover their ass for law suits.
