« Color television sets may be dangerous to your health.

On July 25, 1975, Ant Farm (Curtis Schreier, Chip Lord and Doug Michels) accompanied by Dr. Rolin Finston, Senior Health Physicist of Stanford University’s Health Physics Office, made random visits to forty San Francisco homes to learn if any of the local television sets were leaking X-radiation (X-rays).
