Does leaning on the same side on your bed whilst using a laptop cause breast cancer? I'm worried about the radiation from my computer

In brief: That's rubbish

I'm really sorry that there are so many lies on the internet.
People simply make this stuff up as pranks or to pose as "your friends who are telling you what you doctor won't" and sell you stuff you don't need. The radiation given off by your computer isn't the kind that mutates genes or causes cancer. You, yourself, give off the same radiation. Stop reading this stuff. Best wishes.
