Why should I care about laptop radiation?
Do you ever use your laptop on your lap? Take a look at your manual and (in the fine print) most of them will tell you not to use your laptop on your lap. Ironic isn't it? And just think, that is coming from the manufacture themselves! Additionally, more and more research by doctors and scientists from around the world indicates that we should avoid direct exposure to Electromagnetic Radiation (EMR/EMF) as much as possible especially when it comes to young, developing bodies.
"Using a laptop on your lap is, paradoxically, not a safe way to use it." -Dr. Joseph Mercola
"Unfortunately, all of our exposure standards are based on the false assumption that there are no hazardous effects at intensities that do not cause tissue heating...The importance of this public health issue can not be underestimated." -David Carpenter, MD

Recent research suggests that EMF exposure may be linked to diseases such as:
- Leukemia in Children
- Certain types of Cancer
- Infertility in Men and Women
- Neurological Disorders
Much like cigarettes and asbestos of yesteryear, the benefits of our devices makes it easy for us to ignore the potential risks. Sadly, we are the guinea pigs once again in a large experiment with devastating consequences.
The Danger is Not Knowing Laptops Emit Harmful Radiation
If laptop radiation is so dangerous many people wonder why it is not talked about more. The reality is many people do not know of the existence of radiation coming from their laptops. Those that are aware of the possible side effects from prolonged exposure, the companies producing electronics, do not want to draw attention to a problem that could affect their industry.
The radiation that is thrown off electronics like laptops is radio waves that are helping produce a magnetic field. Electronics are able to put off different types of radiation. Safesleeve takes into consideration three types of radiation to help block ELF, RF, and Thermal radiation.
Another issue with laptops resting directly on a person's lap is the heat that is being produced. Many people feel hot after using a laptop for a long period of time if it is sat directly on top of their lap. The heat from the laptop is not just annoying. It can also be damaging and could even cause discoloration of the skin.
A person who uses their laptop frequently is being exposed to radiation much more frequently than other people plus they have a higher risk of skin cancer if their skin is being damaged in the process. An adult has skin better suited to combat heat. Be very careful of allowing children to use a laptop for long periods of time on their lap since their skin can more easily be damaged.
Researchers are learning more about the effects of radiation that is emitted by electronics. As they do they are becoming increasingly concerned about the long term affects everyone will be experiencing due to a mass majority of people using electronics in their everyday lives.
One concern is the fact that this radiation is starting to change people at a cellular level. These changes are not drastic or noticeable now, but in the future, that may change. One instance of exposure to something bad is likely nothing to worry about. However, people are exposing themselves daily to these dangers and keeping laptops very close to vulnerable parts of their body.
Even with the knowledge that radiation from laptops is hurting our bodies, it is not likely to see anyone putting the laptop away for good. It is unreasonable to ask anyone to go without the use of new technology. Many have to use these items for school or work. That is why protecting oneself from the dangers of radiation is so important.
What Can I do?
One option is to get that laptop off your lap. Is that really realistic though? Shouldn't you be able to use your lap-top on your lap?
Here's a better option...
SafeSleeve for Laptop is a patent-pending, multi-functional lap desk that integrates our FCC certified lab tested shielding technology to block nearly 100% of all three types of EMR radiation (ELF, RF and Thermal) and heat produced by your laptop. Beware of most other anti-radiation products that only block one.
It also transforms into a stylish, lightweight sleeve to protect your laptop and a convenient desktop workstation with mouse pad.
Since SafeSleeve also works as a protective laptop sleeve and convenient workstation, you will gain the peace of mind of being protected wherever and whenever you use your laptop!
With You and Yours in Mind
How Does it Work?
Our FCC certified lab tested shielding material in our 2.0 cases deflects nearly 100% of ELF and RF radiation. Additionally, the outer rigid surface is optimized for airflow to allow your laptop to breathe keeping it, and your lap cool!
Not all radiation blocking products are created equal...Some products may claim to protect you, but many of them only block certain types of radiation and some don't block any at all! With SafeSleeve, the results are clear and measurable.
