Laptop on my belly??

Postby kat4p » Sun Dec 12, 2010 12:31 pm

Just realized that every time I'm online, I'm lying on the couch with my laptop on top of me. Should I be conserned about the amount of radiation my pelvic area is getting (even regardless of the TCC business) or am I looking too much into it?

I don't think it'll cause serious damage, but I've read/heard it's not recommended because it can heat up your organs. I still do it sometimes though! :wink:

I was JUST wondering this same thing!

Here's some info I found on electromagnetic radiation dangers.

i was told it was the heat from the lap top that is dangerous....too much heat can supposedly affect the ovaries/eggs. not sure about the truth of this?!?

Havent heard about it for women, but they do tell guys not to do it so i guess it would effects us in about the same way.

I have a little folding table that i use for my laptop.

I have this to use with the laptop if i must put it on my lap
