Effects of extremely low frequency magnetic field on fertility of adult male and female rats.
Published in: Bioelectromagnetics 2001; 22 (5): 340-344
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
