Many office workers like to raise a pot of cactus on the desk to prevent computer radiation. The reason why this idea is because the cactus can survive in the desert where water is scarce, high temperature and strong sunlight, and the vitality is tenacious. Some people think that there is a lot of ultraviolet light in the sun, and the cactus is not afraid of the sun and has strong anti-radiation ability.
Can cacti really have anti-radiation effects? “This is more of a psychological effect.” Dr. Feng Feixue, Ph.D. in Plant Molecular Biology, said that plants can only absorb red, far-red (infrared), violet and ultraviolet light from solar radiation, which is the guarantee for their photosynthesis. .
But the “radiation energy” produced by the sun and the radiation generated by electronic products are two concepts, so there is no basis for cactus to shield or adsorb these radiation better than others. Moreover, studies have shown that the electromagnetic strength around ordinary computers is far less than the limits of safety standards, there is no need to worry, and there is no need for additional “anti-radiation”.
