I get headaches and dizziness, but only when I’m working with a NEW computer WHILE IT IS OPERATING. If I turn it off, problem goes away. If EMF was the issue, wouldn’t it cause my symptoms for the life of the computer? My symptoms go away after owning the computer for 3 or 4 months. So what else can it be? I think some chemicals are off-gassing from the exhaust vent that’s bothering me that dissipates over time (I don’t think EMF’s dissipate over time, do they?). Even when I move the computer to another room, it bothers me—so it’s permeating throughout the house. Same thing happens when I buy a new TV. Makes me wonder if a fanless PC would solve my problem, although the simplest solution is buying used computers. I also understand that new, energy efficient computers have magnified “electro-smog.” If this is the culprit, I need an old PC. – See more at: https://www.electricsense.com/f…..ated/#p487

Yes, though in my case I cannot tolerate neither chemicals nor high EMFs,
…in your case, alot points to chemical outgassing, as mentioned in Nordstrom’s book Invisible Disease.
Computer components are glued with toxic Epoxy.
Chemicals are everywhere, they still didn’t dissipate from a Pelonis Ceramic space heater I bought years ago via Home Depot. Even a top-notch Delonghi oil-radiator – I needed to use a SLIGHTLY-damp cloth to wipe off the chemicals from all the fins, so that I could use it.
(Of course, I would never tell them that, as anything wet is taboo! But what choice do they give us after all??)
Ditto re: hotpots, and many silicone spatula’s.
Even SCUNCI’s silicone hair “gelly’s” for ponytails now emit chemical smells (discernible to MCS-sensitives like me).
But a few years ago, they were NOT toxic.
Only lately. That’s the trend – shame on China.
