Apple's iPad2 heart risk found in research by 14-year-old

(Continued)

MINNEAPOLIS —

A regular at Johns Hopkins University's Center for Talented Youth, Chien doesn't see herself becoming a doctor. At the camp, she regularly participates in the writing program and she said that one of her favorite parts of the iPad2 project was summing the results for publication in a medical journal. Eventually, she wants to write a novel, she said.

Chien first presented her results in the San Joaquin County Science Fair's high school category in March, but the project was beat out for the top spot by work on electromagnetics and on the effect of punctuation mark placement in keyboards on carpal tunnel syndrome.

Chien, who rows in her free time, says she may revisit the issue for next year's science fair, looking at the risks with other electronic products.
