You may be wondering, "Why do I need a HARApad?"
First, laptop computers emit electromagnetic radiation and harmful heat that, when placed on your lap, go directly into your body. -Why is this something you need to be concerned with? Here are a few reasons why:
Radiation is energy that is transmitted in the form of waves or particles. We're exposed to extremely low frequency (ELF) radiation every day from sources like portable media devices, computers, mp3 players, televisions and even power lines.
However, a laptop is among the few electrical devices we use in direct contact with our body, consequently exposing us to the full effects of the radiation.
Many health professionals recommend limiting ELF exposure to 1-3 milliGauss (mG).- Laptops often emit between 75-175 mG while running everyday tasks – clearly a lot more than you should be exposed to.
The problem with ELF electromagnetic radiation is that it has been linked to diseases like leukemia, Alzheimer’s disease, infertility and electromagnetic sensitivity.

What the experts are saying about the risks of EMR
“The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) warns “There is reason for concern” and advises “prudent avoidance.”
“Fifteen Studies…show that ELF and RF/MW exposure reduces melatonin in people and a serotonin enhancement,” and melatonin is a “scavenger of free radicals” which are “now known to play a formative role in most brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s’ Disease, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, multiple sclerosis, and Parkinson’s Disease.”
“There is little doubt that exposure to ELF causes childhood cancer.”
“Laboratory studies that examine human breast cancer cells have shown that ELF exposure between 6 mG and 12 mG can interfere with protective effects of melatonin for the growth of these breast cancer cells.”
“Exposure up to 2.5 milliGauss is considered safe. Higher values are not considered entirely safe and over 10 mG is considered unhealthy.”
"According to Dr. Neil Cherry, EMR exposure reduces the body’s production of melatonin, a compound that fights to reduce free radicals which in the body play a role in the formation of brain disorders like Alzheimer's Disease."
