HP Replies to the 'Harmful Laser Printer' Claim
| by Gagan Gupta |
As expected, after Queensland University of Technology, Australia reported that laser printer emissions could be as harmful to humans as cigarette smoke, HP was quick to bullsh*t the claim.
HP stands behind the safety of its products. Testing of ultrafine particles is a very new scientific discipline. There are no indications that ultrafine particle (UFP) emissions from laser printing systems are associated with special health risks. Currently, the nature and chemical composition of such particles – whether from a laser printer or from a toaster – cannot be accurately characterized by analytical technology. However, many experts believe that many of the UFPs found in common household and office products are not discrete solid particles, but may be condensation products or small droplets created during thermal processes.HP does, however, agree that more research and testing is required in this area. Personally, I think breathing in Mumbai can be a bigger health risk than printer emissions.
