Abstract:

Extremely low frequency electromagnetic fields play a considerable role in military and civilian use of electric power and in communication systems. The study is part of a series of investigations conducted at NAMRL to examine biological effects of such fields. Liver triglycerides in mice exposed to a 45 Hz magnetic field for 24 hours were not significantly different from control values. No differences in body weight, liver weight or liver water content were detected either.
