Special thanks to HARApad for providing a complimentary product for feature. As always, all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Friends, I’ve been reading up on something that has pretty well freaked me out, largely because of how prevalent it is and how much it affects me, and anyone else who spends a lot of time with an electronic device such as a computer or cell phone (so…yeah…EVERYONE).
Did you know that these devices are emiting radiation? And did you know that radiation is NO BUENO for our bodies? It has been linked to cancer and all kinds of awful diseases. 🙁
Now, there are some people out there who are really running with this fear of radiation, and are totally ditching their electronics and pretty well going underground.
This post is NOT about taking these types of measures. I mean, I’m writing this post on my laptop and my cell phone is approximately inches away from my keyboard. So clearly I’m not advocating for unplugging. That’s just not the world we live in, friends.
But I’ve been seeking ways to better manage the amount of radiation I’m getting exposed to every day, and one product that I have found to be very effective is the HARApad. I really REALLY wish I had known about this product sooner, because now that I have it, I use it any and every time that I am using my laptop. I’d like to show it to you so that you can think about if this might be something you need.
Tim and I put together a quick video to show you how we tested for radiation coming out of the laptop, and the difference that the HARApad makes. It’s a short video, and worth the watch, I promise!
So the HARApad looks, at first glance, like a lovely piece of wood. I want to assure you that when you buy a HARApad, though, you aren’t just buying a piece of wood!
Inside this pad of wood (or black plastic if you opt for that design) is military grade electromagnetic radiation (EMR) shielding. HARApads now also come with an EMF detector so that you can see how well the device is performing. You can also use the detector of your cell phones and tablets to see how dangerous that output might be (HARApad has protection devices available for those electronics, as well).
I have had a conversation with the founder of HARApad and he’s really passionate about getting the word out about this particular problem we are facing, largely unbeknownst to us. Yet he is very practical in his approach, seeking easy solutions to help manage the output of radiation around us while still living in the techno-driven world we live in, rather than running away from it.

HARApad has a great general overview of the problem we are facing if you are like me and had no idea this was a real issue.
Ready to Get a HARApad?
HARApads are available directly on the HARApad site, as well as on Amazon, and you can find options for your phone, your tablet, and your laptop.

I’d love to hear, friends: were you aware of the radiation output of our electronics? Does it concern you at all? Have you taken any steps to reduce your exposure?
