Is there any research showing that laptops cause harm/cancer to male or female reproductive organs?

Is there any research showing that laptops cause harm/cancer to male or female reproductive organs?

Yes, indirectly.: The male testes are situated outside the body cavity because they are designed to optimally function a few degrees below normal body temperature.

Warning on a wallet that says"chemicals in this product are known to California to cause cancer &reproductive harm." Is this only for direct contact?

Warning on a wallet that says"chemicals in this product are known to California to cause cancer &reproductive harm." Is this only for direct contact?

Weird politics: California has a bizarre law by which everything "has been proved to cause cancer." In the subscientific world of tort law, manufacturers must put this silly label on products in order to avoid ruinous lawsuits. Just ignore it. This stuff tends to discredit real cancer dangers. But that's politics. ...Read more

Can SLS and parabens cause cancer and damage the male reproductive system?

Can SLS and parabens cause cancer and damage the male reproductive system?

No: Please forgive my frankness. The SLS claim is made up. The parabens claims have little biologic plausibility for breast cancer (the main focus) and have resisted demonstration. If you're reading a site claiming there's a terrible conspiracy and cover-up, you should be able to recognize disinformation. We live in a sea of carcinogens, mostly unavoidable; pepper, orange juice, and so forth. ...Read more

Can one chest CT cause harm to the cells or soft tissue of the lungs? Is cancer possible? I m 30yr old male.

Can one chest CT cause harm to the cells or soft tissue of the lungs? Is cancer possible? I m 30yr old male.

Doubtful: Cumulative radiation exposure is known to induce cancers, but 1 ct scan is not alot of radiation, relatively speaking, though it may equal the amount of radiation exposure of several hundred chest x-rays.
