When you are reading this article, you are already expose to the radiation from your computer. Computer has woven so deeply into the fabric of our daily lives that it becomes indispensable! We use the computer at work and at home and we are surrounded by computers everywhere!
Because we always interact with the computer, we have to keep in mind that the radiation from the computer is damaging to our health. Some researchers believe that the radiation could attribute to such conditions as leukaemia, tiredness or general fatigue.
If you are one of the billions that use computer daily ( at least 5 hours a day), you should consider minimizing computer radiation.
Here are some top 5 ways to reduce radiation effects from the computer:
1. Sit at least 2 feet from your computer’s monitor
Studies have proved that the strength of an electromagnetic field decreases with the square of the distance from its source.
2. Use a radiation filter plate
The radiation filter plate is specially designed to reduce the hazard of radiation. By attaching a filter plate in front of your computer’s screen, you can easily minimize the radiation field. Of course, another tip is to reduce the brightness of the screen. The brighter the screen, the higher the radiation there will be.
3. Purchase a new computer screen
The newer computer screen model has less radiation released compare to the older models within the same distance. The newer model of computer screen is said to have one to two times less than the older model.
4. Use a Salt Lamp
Scientific studies have shown that salt crystal lamps can neutralize EMF from our modern day living. EMF comes from unnatural sources like TVs, radios, cell phones and computers. Salt crystal lamps help fight against these higher frequencies by creating a balance of ions in the air, thus stimulate natural drive and healthy energy.
5. Eat antioxidant food
Generally, radiation can cause excess free radicals in our body. With that, we need sufficient antioxidants to neutralize these free radicals in our bodies. Nutritionists recommend a intake of 5000 ORAC unit of antioxidants a day. That is equivalent to 10 servings of fruits and vegetables.
