In addition to the background radiation of natural electromagnetic fields of the earth, human being is at the risk of manmade sources of electromagnetic field. Recently, with rapid development of new technologies, public concerns on potential effects of power frequency electromagnetic field on reproduction and fertility have been increased. Low electromagnetic fields of 1-300 Hz are commonly use and occur in power transmission lines, rail way power supply, transformers and in household power… Expand
Role of Withania somnifera (Ashwagandha) in the management of male infertility.
TLDR
The role of herbal medicines in male infertility is discussed, a proposed direct oxidative mechanism involving mitigation of oxidative stress as well as an indirect mechanism consisting of a gamma-aminobutyric acid-like-mimetic pathway ameliorating hormonal balance through crosstalk among different endocrine glands to improve male fertility are described.

Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Fields Induce Spermatogenic Germ Cell Apoptosis: Possible Mechanism
TLDR
There is increasing evidence that EL-EMF exposure is involved with germ cell apoptosis in testes, and the possible mechanism of germ cell suicide in teste induced by ELF-MF is proposed. Expand
Chronic exposure to 50Hz magnetic fields causes a significant weakening of antioxidant defence systems in aged rat brain.
TLDR
The data seem to suggest that the exposure to ELF-MFs may act as a risk factor for the occurrence of oxidative stress-based nervous system pathologies associated with ageing. Expand
