How Hazardous Are Laptops To Your Health? If you’ve ever used a laptop computer, you’ve probably sat with it on your lap (hence the name) while watching television or sitting in an airport and noticed that it can get quite hot.

How Hazardous Are Laptops To Your Health?

And you may have heard that having that laptop on your lap can potentially be hazardous to your health. Because, while the computer does not get hot enough to actually burn you, it can lead to problems. Read on for some sound advice on what you should be concerned about the next time you boot up. The Claim: Hot Laptops Cause “Toasted Skin Syndrome“ Connected Air: Smart Dust Is The Future Of The Quantified World. This article is part of ReadWrite Future Tech, an annual series in which we explore how technologies that will shape our lives in the years to come are grounded in the innovation and research of today.

The year is 2035, and Sgt. Bill Traverse and his team of commandos are performing a “sweep and clean” operation through a portion of the war-torn Mexico City. Their job is to find any hidden pockets of resistance and flush them out and back through the neutral zone or eliminate them. The Real Dangers Of Artificial Light To Your Health.

The Real Dangers Of Artificial Light To Your Health

Artificial light can impact your health in a variety of ways, but why is this a problem? The problem lies in the color spectrum that artificial light uses.

Diagnosis and Management of Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity EHS BSEM March 2014. Mammograms Send Women To Deathbeds Faster And Increase Risk of Breast Cancer Up To 30 Percent. By Dave Milhalovic Even with the established evidence which supports the long-term health risks and danger of mammograms, the medical community still pushes them like pancakes.

Mammograms Send Women To Deathbeds Faster And Increase Risk of Breast Cancer Up To 30 Percent

Besides overdiagnosis and the unnecessary treatment of insignificant cancers, mammograms cause radiation-induced breast cancer themselves, increasing several risk factors for the disease. Increases Breast Cancer Mortality Mammography is the most widely used screening modality for breast cancer and with good reason for the medical community. It gives them more patients. Diagnosis of cancers that would otherwise never have caused symptoms or death in a woman’s lifetime can expose a woman to the immediate risks of therapy (surgical deformity or toxicities from radiation therapy, hormone therapy, or chemotherapy), late sequelae (lymphedema), and late effects of therapeutic radiation (new cancers, scarring, or cardiac toxicity).

More Than Half Result In Overdiagnosis Inaccurate Even When Cancer Is Present. Understanding The Dangers of Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs. By worldtruth.tv You see them in every grocery store and home center – those funny-looking curly compact fluorescent lights (CFLs) that are rapidly replacing the old round bulbs.

Understanding The Dangers of Compact Fluorescent Light Bulbs

And pretty soon, the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 kicks in, requiring bulbs to be 25 to 30 percent more efficient by 2012 to 2014, and 70 percent more efficient by 2020, effectively phasing out traditional incandescent bulbs as a way to save energy and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. The energy efficiency of CFLs may be significant, but unlike traditional light bulbs, there is a hidden danger sealed inside each little bulb that requires special handling and disposal. Synthetic Biology Products and Applications Inventory. After more than twenty years of basic and applied research, applications based on synthetic biology are gaining in commercial use.

But it has been difficult to find out how many “synbio” products are on the market or may potentially enter the marketplace in the near future. While not comprehensive, this inventory gives the public the best available look at the many manufacturer-identified synbio-based products and the companies that produce them. Synthetic biology is a rapidly changing technology platform and therefore the data represented in this inventory may not represent the most current developments in any particular product category, company or market status designation. CPI Home. After more than twenty years of basic and applied research, nanotechnologies are gaining in commercial use. But it has been difficult to find out how many “nano” consumer products are on the market and which merchandise could be called “nano.” While not comprehensive, this inventory gives the public the best available look at the 1,600+ manufacturer-identified nanotechnology-based consumer products introduced to the market.

This "living" inventory is a resource for consumers, citizens, policymakers, and others who are interested in learning about how nanotechnology is entering the marketplace. We recently published a paper about this inventory. DNA Origami Building Nanodevices of the Future. Virtual motion, real consequences. Moving pictures can produce illusions – and not just in the cinema: If one stares for a time at a homogeneous flow – such as a waterfall – and then looks at a stationary surface, that surface will appear to be moving in the opposite direction to the falling water.

Indeed, this so-called aftereffect can be observed across different sensory modalities, as LMU researchers Luigi Cuturi and Paul MacNeilage now report in the journal Current Biology. “Optical illusions like that are not just everyday curiosities. They also provide important clues to how sensory information is processed in the brain,” MacNeilage explains. Aftereffects arise because the information processing operations that underlie our perceptions adapt their response to certain aspects of a persistent stimulus: When exposed to a stimulus that is maintained over a long period, processing of the sensory information by the nerve cells becomes “entrained”.

Mercury – a potent, developmental neurotoxin that can damage the brain, liver, kidneys and central nervous system. Infants and young children are particularly vulnerable to mercury’s toxic effects.

Avoid Alkaline Water Machines? The Unseen Enemy. Nano Bots Smart Dust Being Used On You. Blue Light Exposed. Natural blue light versus artificial blue light Blue light is actually everywhere. When outside, light from the sun travels through the atmosphere. The shorter, high energy blue wavelengths collide with the air molecules causing blue light to scatter everywhere. This is what makes the sky look blue. In its natural form, your body uses blue light from the sun to regulate your natural sleep and wake cycles.

Why should we be concerned about blue light exposure? Blue light waves are the among the shortest, highest energy wavelengths in the visible light spectrum.
