Many people worry only about burns from the sun, the stove and fire, but something called "Toasted Skin Syndrome," which can lead to skin cancer, can result rather surprisingly from the frequent practice of lap-top computer usage.

A recent complaint by a 12-year-old gamer revealed a noticeable sponge-patterned burn on his left leg, the location under which his laptop's processor was situated.
