AbstractThe study was conducted to evaluate the effect of 900MHz radiofrequency – electromagnetic waves ( RF-EMW ) sent out from mobile phone on rats male fertility . 36 male wistar rats 12- week aged ( 300 -400 g) body weight were used , divided into three groups , control group , 1hday for 30 days and 2hday for 30 days exposure groups and then divided into A and B subgroups after end of experiment . A subgroups rats were used for semen analysis and sex organs weights were measured , also hormonal analysis were done . B subgroups rats were used for fertility test . The results show a significant decrease in testis weight in 1hday exposure group for 30 days , a significant decrease in prostate weight in 1hday , 2hday for 30 days exposure groups when compared with control group , an increase in seminal vesicle weight in 2hday group was significant as compared with control group and , A highly significant decrease in number of total sperm count in a both exposure groups verses control group . The percentage of live sperms was also affected as highly significant decrease of living sperms when compared to control groups in exposure groups during the experiment . There are a highly significant increase in percentage of abnormal sperms in both exposure groups as compared to control group . There are a significant increase in mixing days until parturition and a decrease in number of pups in both exposure groups as compared to control group . In conclusion the electromagnetic waves emitted from the mobile phone had a hazard effects on fertility of male rats .
