Therefore, we are constantly exposed to the EMF emitted from our laptops and desktops, in this blog, we will discuss how to reduce our exposure to EMF from our laptops, the types of electromagnetic fields emitted from a laptop, and the dangers a laptop can have on our health.
A laptop is a small personal computer with a thin LCD or LED computer found on the inside of the “opening” lid and a keyboard on the inside of the lower lid that allows us to type.
In order to use the laptop, you will need to open the upper lid, when you are not using it, you may shut down the upper lid and carry it elsewhere. The name “laptop” came from the word lap because it is placed on the lap when you are using the device.
Laptops use radio frequency (RF) energy because it connects wirelessly to Wi-Fi. In 2011, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), a part of the World Health Organization has stated that radiofrequency is “possibly carcinogenic to humans”(Sources: Laptop Radiation).
Among all electronic devices, laptops are one of the highest sources of EMF as the bottom of the laptop releases low-frequency magnetic field radiations, some modules can get as high as 40-100 milligauss, which is in our opinion 40 to 100 times higher than EMF safety levels.
The EMF coming from high-tension power lines has been proven to increase the chances of Leukemia cases in children, and the range of these power lines are between 10-70 milligauss.
To reduce the impact of radiation exposure on our body, the Federal Communication Commission (a legislative body of the US government) has recommended maintaining a minimum distance of 20 cm between the laptop and the user.
The laptop has different components and each component emits EMF.
Most of the low frequency magnetic and electric fields are generated for components such as the power supply, battery, and screen. In recent years with the advanced technology, these components emit a lower low-frequency (LF) EMF than it used to. As per our knowledge, new laptops emit between 5-20 mG. The underside has higher levels of magnetic fields. The high-frequency EMF is mostly emitted from the Bluetooth and the Wi-Fi modules. In contrast to the low frequency, the high-frequency (HF) radiation from the laptop is much higher than before. As Bluetooth and Wi-Fi were introduced and utilized in the current technologies, we have a much higher high-frequency RF level.
In our opinion, based on our experience and knowledge, here are some useful tips one can use to reduce EMF emitted from Laptop:
We are exposed to many different sources of EMF (electromagnetic fields) radiation in our day to day lives, such as cell phones, tablets, computers, cell towers, smart meters, power lines or Wi-Fi signals. Although this radiation is invisible, tasteless, and odorless, it can nonetheless have serious health consequences with frequent and continuous exposure. Numerous scientific studies have linked overexposure to EMR with sterility in men, damage to fetuses in pregnant women, and the development of various cancers.
At EMR Shielding Solutions, we are dedicated to providing you and your family with the most ideal laptop EMF shielding solutions that are the right fit for your concerns.
Therefore, we recommend the following shielding solutions to reduce your laptop radiations:
Based in Toronto, EMR Shielding Solutions specializes in materials for shielding against EMF and RF radiation. We also offer many different meters, spectrum analyzers, and measuring equipment for detecting these electromagnetic fields in both high and low frequencies.
