To investigate the effects of whole-body microwave exposure on plasma adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH), thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), thyroxine (T4) and free triiodothyronine (T3) levels, rats weighing 267-306 g (light group) and 352-387 g (heavy group) were exposed to microwaves with a frequency of 2,450 MHz at the power densities of 5 and 10 mW/cm2 under an ambient temperature of 21 degrees C to 23 degrees C for an hour. Rectal temperatures were increased by 1.0 degrees C at 5 mW/cm2… CONTINUE READING
