PHILADELPHIA (CBS) - 3D TV is becoming more popular and there has been a concern: could watching 3-D television actually increase a child’s risk of seizures? According to new report, the answer is no.

This was done by researchers at the University of Munich in Germany, and what they found is that there is no relationship at all between 3D TV and seizure-like activity.

There have been reports in the past of seizures associated with certain contrast pattern and flickers in television, but whether it’s 2D or 3D seems to have no relationship at all.
