Aim of study (acc. to author)
Male and femal
rats, 20 weeks of age, were separately exposed for 90 days to 50 Hz (23-27 µT) magnetic field. After exposure each exposed male were individually mated with two unexposed virgin females. Each exposed femal was mated with one unexposed male. After a 10 day mating period, females were examined for fertility. Endpoint
sets of 75 cm x 75 cm rectangular
coils , 37.5cm apart, with 10 turns; 48 cm x 26 cm x 15 cm animal cages placed in the center of the coil
