When is laptop radiation most harmful and why?
Here are some factors that may influence the level of EMF radiation emitted by a laptop and its potential health effects:
1. Proximity to the body: When you use a laptop on your lap, the device is in close proximity to your body, which means you may be exposed to more EMF radiation than if you were using the laptop on a desk or table. To reduce your exposure to laptop EMF radiation, you can use a lap desk or other shielding devices such as our EMF Shielding Laptop case which includes it's own Lap Cover to act as a barrier between your body and the laptop.
2. Length of use: The longer you use a laptop, the more EMF radiation you may be exposed to. If you use a laptop for several hours at a time, you may be at a greater risk of potential health effects than if you only use the device for short periods.
3. Wireless connectivity: When a laptop is connected to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth, it may emit more EMF radiation than if it is in airplane mode or disconnected from wireless networks. To reduce your exposure to laptop EMF radiation, you can turn off Wi-Fi and Bluetooth when you're not using them or use a wired Ethernet connection instead.
4. Power level: The power level of a laptop can also affect the level of EMF radiation it emits. Laptops that are plugged in and charging may emit more radiation than those that are running on battery power.
Overall, while the potential health effects of laptop EMF radiation are still being studied, it's a good idea to take steps to reduce your exposure to EMF radiation from laptops and other electronic devices. This can include using devices that create a barrier between your body and the laptop, limiting your use of laptops and other electronic devices, and turning off wireless connectivity when you're not using it.
Why is laptop radiation such a big deal now?
Laptops are one of the most significant sources of Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) radiation, which is declared toxic by the World Health Organization. Using a laptop while on the body concentrates EMF radiation on the lower abdominal area, which can be especially harmful for the reproductive organs in both males and females.
Are these eco-friendly products?

Does this product shield from ionizing radiation?
Silver Affect Wardrobe shields up to 5GHz with 99% effectiveness. The percentage of shielding slightly decreases with strengths over 5GHz.
Does Silver Affect lose its shielding ability over time?
Each product will lose conductivity over time, especially after washing the garments more than 150 times. This is the same truth for ALL brands that produce EMF Shielding products. The reason being, EMF shielding garments contain natural materials such as copper and silver, which oxidizes in time and can reduce conductivity. Additionally, repeated washing and drying of the garments can cause wear and tear on the fabric, which can also impact conductivity.
This is why it is essential to hand wash garments with all-natural detergent, which will help to minimize wear and tear on the fabric and prevent further oxidation of the natural materials, thus prolonging the effectiveness of the EMF shielding properties.

How does "Pure Silver Metal" block EMF?
Pure silver metal, by itself, does not block EMF (electromagnetic fields). In fact, silver is actually a good conductor of electricity, which means it can conduct electromagnetic radiation rather than block it.
When an electric current flows, it carries electrons through a conductor, then generates EMF radiation. When silver is present, the metal begins to conduct resistance against the current, causing it to deflect the radiation in the opposite direction.
Silver Affect uses Pure Silver Metal as a conductive layer to dissipate electromagnetic radiation and reduce its impact, along with a combination of other natural material which has been proven to provide the highest level of protection against EMF radiation. Click HERE to learn more...
How do I measure radiation from my cell phone?

Is 5G wifi the same as 5G cellular?
No, 5 GHz WiFi and 5G cellular are not the same.
5 GHz WiFi is a frequency band used for wireless communication that operates on the 5 GHz radio frequency. It is used for local wireless networking and is commonly found in homes, offices, and public spaces. It is often used for high-bandwidth activities like video streaming and online gaming because it provides faster data transfer speeds than the older 2.4 GHz WiFi.
On the other hand, 5G cellular is the fifth generation of cellular network technology. It is designed to provide faster data transfer speeds, lower latency, and increased network capacity compared to previous generations of cellular networks like 4G or 3G. 5G operates on different frequency bands, including millimeter-wave (mmWave) and sub-6 GHz bands, depending on the network operator and location.
So, while they may share the same number in their names, 5 GHz WiFi and 5G cellular are different technologies used for different purposes.
What is EMF?
EMF stands for Electromagnetic Fields, which are a type of energy that travels through space and carries electromagnetic radiation. EMF is produced by many sources, including the sun, electrical appliances, power lines, and wireless communication devices.
