Abstract:

The biological effects of microwave radiation on testicular tissue of 56-65 days old Swiss male mice were studied at 1.7 and 3.0 GHz. The power density and time of exposure varied. At 1.7 GHz and a power density of 10 mWsq cm for 100 minute exposure, severe changes in morphology were observed. The study indicates that non-ionizing radiation at 1.7 GHz and a power density of 50 mWsq cm for 30-40 minutes exposure alters spermatogenesis.
