Electronic Office Equipment Poses Risk

Research done by Imperial College's Center for Environmental Policy reports that electronic office equipment such as printers, computers, lamps, wiring, etc. may impact your health by giving off electrical fields also known as EMR or electromagnetic radiation. It seems EMR charges particles in the air such as viruses, bacteria, and allergens. When these particles are inhaled the electrical charge causes them to adhere to the tissue in the lungs and respiratory tract. Of course, conditions such as asthma, flu, and respiratory illnesses can ensue.

Electronic smog, or electropollution, is everywhere. Protect yourself.
