Many modern electronic devices like laptop computers and tablets are used directly in our laps. Sometimes you may notice your lap getting warm from the heat radiating from the device, but did you know that possibly harmful Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR) may also be coming from the device?
Can a laptop cooling pad, laptop tray, lap desk, or laptop table help protect you? From heat…maybe, but not for blocking EMFs. Exposure to EMFs can be a potential health risk if your lap is not protected with some form of laptop radiation protection.
What is EMF?
All electronic devices including laptops and tablets emit Electromagnetic Fields (EMFs) in the form of radiation. It’s a non-ionizing radiation with energy emissions strong enough to interfere with our bodies’ electrons, but not strong enough to ionize the atoms. Unlike most other electronic devices, laptops and tablets not only give off Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) Electromagnetic Radiation, but also emit Radio Frequency (RF) signals when connecting to WiFi or cell tower networks. RF radiations is a higher frequency radiation and many experts believe that this form of radiation can be worse than the ELF radiation.
Experts agree that ELF and RF radiation tend to be less harmful to health when you are a good distance away from the source. However, experts also agree, the closer to the source you are, the more there may be potential danger.
Many of us place our laptops, notebooks, tablets, and tablets on our laps, directly touching our body while doing our homework, when traveling, playing video games or just searching the web. The jury is still out on exactly how dangerous this contact is to our bodies, but numerous studies show that a WiFi radiation can negatively affect our bodies.
For Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) EMF, industry standards have emerged that recommend limiting exposure levels to below 2.5 mG (milligauss). Laptop computers have been measured to emit an unbelievable EMR level of 150 mG, which is 60 times the recommended standard. For RF, exposures should be .6 V/M (volts/meter) or less. Typical laptop devices and tablets can easily exceed 1.5 V/M.
Finally, the heat from our laptop computers are known to increase the temperature of our skin, potentially damaging the surface and causing skin conditions such as ‘Toasted Skin Syndrome.’
Laptop Emissions Impact on the Body
The ELF radiation, RF radiation, and heat have been linked to infertility, birth defects and skin conditions and even cancer. These risks are a result of our bodies being close to the radiating source. Body tissue warm and normal cellular functions mutate causing many health problems. Premature cell division, where cells actually divide before the DNA is correctly established, can occur.
Reduce health risks by maintaining a good distance between your lap and your electronic device. When you choose to place your devices close to you, find a laptop tray that can protect you from EMF radiation, RF radiation and heat. The only laptop shield capable of protecting from all three concerns is The DefenderPad, the industry recommended solution.
Using electronic devices close to your body may be unsafe. A lap desk, laptop cooling pad, laptop table, and even a laptop tray only offer limited health protection. Tell your friends and family members to be careful and protect themselves with The DefenderPad, the only laptop radiation shield that protects from EMF radiation, RF radiation and heat radiation.
