Laptop and Health Question

Does anyone know if there is any evidence that using a laptop on your lap for prolonged periods can be dangerous to your repro organs and to the health of an unborn/future baby?

no idea about if this has been proved but it does get hot so i would always put it on a cushion or table rather than directly onto your lap

don;t know but don't think there is any firm evidence..BUT I have heard its not advised as well as using equipment such as a photocopier for prolonged periods. tbh I wouldn't do it and would work at a raised surface.
