No parameters are specified for this exposure.
No significant difference was found in total sperm count between the control group and the exposed group. However, exposed rats exhibited a significantly reduced percentage of motile sperms. Moreover, exposure resulted in a significant increase in lipid peroxidation and low glutathione content in the testis and epididymis. Facial temperature was not affected in either group of rats.
In conclusion, the authors speculate that radiofrequency electromagnetic fields from mobile phones negatively affect semen quality and may impair male fertility.
