Hello, everybody 🙂
I have found my way here after feeling having a long-standing suspicion having my laptop on my lap can’t be good for me.
I have now started to look into it and what I have found has got me worried sick. I have had a laptop for around 4 years and I’m never of the thing as I also work online.
It’s a macbook air 2012 if that means anything to anyone with regards to how dangerous they are.
I have probably actually had it on my lap for an average of 1 hour per day in all that time. From what I have read this has really done me no favors at all. I will now do whatever has to be done to reduce further exposure, but my question is this, can I reduce/reverse the damage that’s already been done?
The potential DNA damage is probably what worries me the most.
Any response will be appreciated thank you.

Hi Kyle, Welcome to the forum. I can sympathise with your concern, but rather than agonising about what may or may not have happened in the past I see you are now looking at what you can do going forward to minimise any risk in future. I don’t have any specialist knowledge on the DNA issues, but Dariusz Leszczynski (a top independent scientist) has pointed out that we do not really know how much of the DNA damage is repaired by the body’s own repair mechanism – you may find more about it on his website https://betweenrockandhardplac…..press.com/
There is lots of information on the main site here about minimising exposure, including from laptops. Many Mac’s can now be hard-wired using a USB Ethernet adapter. There are videos and articles online explaining how to do this. My son did this recently and it only took a few minutes and involved one straightforward download (and an adapter, which we already had in the house).
