A TV maker is starting to warn viewers about the potential risks of spending too much time in front of a 3-D TV.

The Samsung company has now issued an alert on its Australian website. It warns children and teenagers with a family history of epilepsy or strokes that watching too much 3-D could increase the risk of these health issues.

Guidelines for Samsung's new line of 3-D TVs warn prolonged exposure to 3-D programming might cause motion sickness, lingering depth perception problems and disorientation.

The guidelines suggest taking frequent 30-minute breaks from watching TV.
