Using your laptop computer on your lap is, paradoxically, not a safe way to use it.
Just as research is emerging showing that cell phones should not actually be held right next to your head (for instance, the iPhone manual states the phone must be at least 5/8 inch away from your body or ear for "safe operation"), research is showing that spending long hours with a laptop on your lap -- the use for which it is intended -- is likely harmful.
Ironic, isn't it? FULL STORY
- Use caution with any laptop use, especially if you’re a pregnant woman, and if you choose to use it on your lap, only do so with a lap pad or cushion that is about one foot thick
- You may be able to lessen EMF exposure during laptop use by using an external keyboard (as even typing on your laptop may expose you to high EMFs) and only using it while it’s battery-powered, not while plugged in, as the power supply from a laptop induces strong electric current densities
- Separate research has also shown that laptops may be harmful to sperm, with samples exposed to a wireless internet-connected laptop showing a significant decrease in sperm motility and an increase in sperm DNA fragmentation
- Researchers concluded your lap is an “improper site” for use of a laptop computer, and suggested the devices be renamed so as not to “induce customers towards an improper use”
- Electromagnetic fields (EMFs) produced by five commonly used laptops of different brands were found to be “considerably higher” than the values recommended by two recent guidelines for computer monitors magnetic field emissions
- New research shows spending long hours with a laptop on your lap -- the use for which it is intended -- is likely harmful
I left a nice comment there-
Regarding "Lowered Male Fertility"- That seems to me to be a GOOD THING.
The area of human misery we try to help people in, involves people who become parents and run into difficulties with Children's "Protective" "Services" (CPS).
The CPS system is completely out of control. Children are being KIDNAPPED by CPS, held for ransom, doped out of their heads, placed in a merry-go-round of foster living arrangements where MUCH worse things happen to them than in their parent's care.
At the same time, parents can be falsely accused for the most absurd reasons, run through the unconstitutional courts of NO Due Process where their Characters are assassinated and they are reduced to being unemployable, impoverished, and homeless. And due to the absurd misuse of psychiatry and their drugging, people are turned into zombies.
There is great fascist evil afoot, while the mass public slumbers, unaware, ignorant, and UNPREPARED for when CPS comes to YOUR FRONT DOOR.
Of course, you don't even have to be a parent to find yourself in the talons of CPS. If you encounter children ANYWHERE, or have encountered children any time in your lifetime (no statue of limitations) you can be accused of ANYTHING at ANY TIME, and the only proof necessary is THE ALLEGATION.
Do YOU know what to do if CPS knocks on YOUR front door?
