    This entire article is nonsense hogwash without a single credible shred of evidence. Just because you throw out terms that sound good put together doesnt mean they are in any way correct.

    Good article. I am wondering now that I am undergoing chemotherapy for Hodgkins Lymphoma - discovered in my groin - if my laptop has played a part in this condition. The swollen lymph node is exactly where I used to feel burning from my laptop. I think it is too coincidental to be dismissed lightly.

    I used to lie in bed with my laptop resting on my stomach. After about 2 and a half years of doing this I developed a new mole on my left side, where the warmest part of the computer would be. I didn't think anything of it until it was taken off a year later and the lab report came back as severely atypical with melanoma features. Scared the hell out of me! I don't know if the computer caused it, but to be safe I now keep the laptop on a table at all times.

    I think as time goes on like any other health problem, people start to complain of same problem will be determine it is a actual worry. I too have a brand new mole-like bump on my right leg near the upper
    thigh. I had pc on lap for 6 months before bump occurred. Haven't been in the sun for years. Pc gets
    real hot on thighs and I moved pc around between thighs and on lap. I was told it's a precancerous bump and had it frozen but need it cut off if it doesn't come off by itself. Be cautious people. Put pc on table, or bed table or lap rest that will degenerate heat from pc.

    I have been putting my computer on my stomach while laying in bed, I have recently realized the lymph nodes in my groin get swollen and tender within minutes of having it on my stomach. I stopped putting the computer on my stomach for a week, no problems. Then to see if it was the computer giving me swollen lymph nodes I placed the computer on my stomach again. Within minutes bingo tender lymph nodes! I bought a small table for over my lap while I am in bed. I do believe a computer should not be placed on your body. Very dangerous! Be aware. Please let your children know the danger in this.

    For all the Nay Sayers, OK aSSumers here is a bit of reality. I am a disabled veteran, I sit with a laptop in my lap up to 8 HOURS A DAY. I have a growth on the inside of my left thigh that corresponds to both the thermal vent on my NOT OVERHEATED lap top and the WIFI transmitter card. Not over heated because I use a metal mesh tray to hold the laptop off of my legs so it does not over heat. I have had the laptop for 3 years yet this year the growth started around April (2013) and has slowly increased in size. I have allowed this to continue as an experiment to prove the dangers of WIFI radiation. My leg is not "toasted" though it is slightlydiscolored and has what appears to be fatty tumors increasing in size under the discoloration. The area is neither painful nor uncomfortable.

    What about the wireless signal, wasn't all that long ago when cell phones were creating antenna shaped brain tumors, who knows what the wireless signal is doing to the internal organs in the lap!
