Does sleeping next to or close to tablet (radiation from iPad tablet) cause any physical harm or physical changes to face or body?

Can radiation from tablet cause flattening or any change in position of facial bones (moving back, or in any direction) or bones in body? Thinking it’s a paranoid thought.

No such health effects

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Let me assure you that till now there is no evidence to suggest that sleeping next to a tablet/iPad causes any sort of health issues. Radiation or anything else from a tablet cannot cause flattening or any change in position of facial bone. You need not be worried.

Let me know if I could help further.
