    If you mean from a CRT monitor, they only give out a tiny amount of radiation.

    it's a fan, blowing air over the components to cool them down. The worst that can happen is that you get an allergy or something from all the dust inside.

    flatscreens are fine.
    I doubt computers give out enough radiation to cause cancer. I'd be more worried about mobile phones.

    all electronics are tested to see the effect on humans, eg. cd players class 1 laser warning. if it is not safe then it wont end up in your hands.

    Yes, there is radiation from PCs in the form of Infra-Red Electomagnetic (EM) Radiation and other EM waves of different frequencies (e.g. radio) due to the inductive effects of current in various wires and circuits etc. However, in answer to your question, no, the use of a PC will not cause any increased risk of cancer. Whilst it does produce various forms of radiation, these are essentially harmless. Just because something produces radiation does not mean it will kill you!! If you want to get away from Infra Red radiation, switch off the heating, go and live in a freezer or underground cave complex. If you want to avoid radio waves, go and live in a lead - lined box covered with several metres of concrete in the base of a large mountain - cancer (probably) won't get you, but the lead poisoning will . So just relax - there's so much stuff that is potentially harmless but if you spend time worrying about everything that can possibly kill you, you''ll never LIVE!! As long as you don't do too much of the really harmful stuff such as smoking/excessive tanning etc. the risks are so small to be insignificant.
