Recent scientific studies have determined that reproductive health is affected by cell phone radiationwhen the cell phone is turned on and kept on the body, either in a pocket or a purse. But what about laptop radiation? Did you know that your vital parts are also getting an unhealthy dose of electromagnetic radiation from your laptop computer if you make a habit of actually holding it on your lap?
Well the same kind of risks hold true for laptops as for cell phones, decreased sperm count, because of Wi-Fi radiation from a laptop. Researchers in Argentina conducted a study to look at how holding a laptop on the legs, near the testes, affects sperm. Their results showed damage to the DNA of sperm cells, suggesting the harmful nature of laptop radiation on male reproductive capacity.
In the research study, two sets of sperm samples were studied from healthy donors. One was incubated near a laptop connected via Wi-Fi, the other was a control sample. The laptop sample showed a greater number of sperm that were immobile after 4 hours of exposure. Another aspect of the study showed broken DNA in the sperm exposed to the radiation from the devices.
You can easily see for yourself laptop radiation by testing with an EMF meter.
Fertility Warning: Laptop Radiation Is Not To Be Taken Lightly
Sperm need both mobility and healthy DNA to fertilize a female egg. It seems that, as strange as it sounds, laptops don’t belong on laps.
Sánchez Sarmiento, one of the Argentinean Researchers stated: “While we need further research, our first advice is that people avoid using the laptop on your lap, especially if they are connected to Wi-Fi”.
As more and more evidence is gathered regarding the hazards to human health from electromagnetic frequency radiation from different sectors of the scientific world, its clear to me that we should question the safety of all EMF transmitting and receiving devices.
How To Protect Yourself From Laptop Radiation
The short answer is not to use your laptop on your lap. But if you do insist on using your laptop on your lap then you would be well advised to do so for only for short periods. Click here for my 9 tips to reduce computer radiation.
Human Reproductive Health at Great Risk From Laptop Radiation
A laptop may seem perfectly innocuous. But just think about it. It receives wireless internet signals (microwaves) and radiates EMF’s. The human anatomy has no place in a microwave oven. Laptop radiation poses a real threat to regular users of laptop PCs
How long are we going to ignore increasing evidence from the scientific community that we are facing a dire emergency? Laptop radiation can damage sperm and create other adverse health effects, act now before its too late…
I carry my phone in my right front pocket, in the “on”, but not in “talk” mode. I’ve noticed that the spot roughly where the phone usually sits feels cold and tingly. My chiropractor said I have a pinched nerve, but I wonder if the phone isn’t responsible. Any thoughts?
It’s impossible to say with any degree of certainty whether your symptoms are linked to your cell phone exposure. What science is telling us, more and more, and which I have known for many years through my own experiences, is that even very low EMF exposures have biological effects. My advice, listen to your body, it’s usually right. For my safe cell phone tips see, https://electricsense.com/775/how-to-protect-yourself-from-cell-phone-radiation/
A recent study concludes that laptops should not be placed on the lap at all due to ELF. Extremely low frequency magnetic fields are also harmful for human health.
Great info Frank! Thanks for sharing.
hootyhaha on youtube said,
1. Does it matter then, how far we sit from the laptop?
2. It’s 2013. There still has not been an agency approved lap table to sit laptops on (while having the full set up on our laps), so people can lean back and use the laptops for the way they were intended? Like some sort of pad?
1. Distance from the source (in this case the laptop) is one of the most important factors which determines your exposure level. So how far you sit from your laptop matters a lot.
2. Unfortunately most governments are refusing to acknowledge the dangers of this kind of radiation….using a Harapad is one way to reduce your exposure, see https://www.electricsense.com/1138/my-9-tips-to-cut-down-on-exposure-to-computer-radiation/
How can one protect himself when using an IPad?
Is an IPad safe to use for a writing ap if wifi is turned off?
With most computers the solution to WiFi radiation exposures is to use a hardwired connection. But iPads can’t be plugged in, they can only connect to the Interent via WiFi. Since EMF exposures drop off dramatically with distance, using your iPad on a stand at arms length is the best advice I can give you. Switching off WiFi and 3G connection is better but not completely safe….you will still be exposing yourself to some electrical and magnetic radiation. Apologies for the delay in replying but I had intended writing an article on this subject in response to your question.
Have you heard of mu-metal shielding, if so about how much might be needed to protect against computer radiation?
Mu-metal is generally not suitable for dealing with computer radiation….its heavy and expensive….using mu-metal shielding to shield from laptop radiation would be a bit like using a sledge hammer to knock in a nail…for my advice on dealing with computer radiation, see https://www.electricsense.com/1138/my-9-tips-to-cut-down-on-exposure-to-computer-radiation/
