New Study: EMF exposures from laptops ‘on laps’ may exceed safety guidelines for fetus

Bellieni CV, Pinto I, Bogi A, Zoppetti N, Andreuccetti D, Buonocore G. (2012). Exposure to electromagnetic fields from laptop use of "laptop" computers. Arch Environ Occup Health. 2012;67(1):31-6. In this study, the authors assess the safety of 5 brands of commonly used laptops computers. When close to the body, the laptop induces currents that are within 34.2% to 49.8% ICNIRP recommendations for adults, but exceed these exposures by 182-263% for a fetus (in pregnant women). They suggest the laptop should be renamed to prevent customers from the implied, but improper use.
