Key ResultThe exposure of male mice to radiofrequency radiations from mobile phone (GSM) base stations at a workplace complex and residential quarters caused 39.78 and 46.03%, respectively, in sperm head abnormalities compared to 2.13% in control group. Statistical analysis of sperm head abnormality score showed that there was a significant (p < 0.05) difference in occurrence of sperm head abnormalities in test animals.

Effect of Electromagnetic Radiation of Mobile Phone on Sperm Morphology in Albino Rats

It is proved that mobile phone radiation affects sperm morphology by observing different types of abnormalities observed in sperm morphology.

Radiofrequency radiation (900 MHz)-induced DNA damage and cell cycle arrest in testicular germ cells in swiss albino mice

RFR exposure-induced oxidative stress causes DNA damage in germ cells, which alters cell cycle progression leading to low sperm count in mice, indicating that the adverse effects of RFR on mice germ cells are detrimental but reversible.

The Effect of Cellular Phone Microwave Radiation on Sperm Fertility Indices (Count, Motility, Viability and Morphology) in Mice

Background & objectives: Cell phone microwave (MW) is one of the most harmful physical agents in modern society. This study was designed to determine the effects of exposure to cell phone microwaves

Long-term effects of 900 MHz radiofrequency radiation emitted from mobile phone on testicular tissue and epididymal semen quality

It is claimed that long-term exposure of 900 MHz RF radiation alter some reproductive parameters of male rats, however, more supporting evidence and research is definitely needed on this topic.

Level of Radiofrequency (RF) Radiations from GSM Base Stations and its Biological Effects on Albino Mice, Mus musculus

The relevance of these findings in setting radiofrequency radiation exposure guidelines and the need for more studies with widely varying biological parameters is very necessary as Nigeria leaps further into the communication age are very necessary.

Effect of Electromagnetic Wave Emitted from Mobile Phone on Some Reproductive Parameters in Adult Male Guinea Pigs

It was suggested that the EMW radiation emitted by mobile phones in daily use up to 60 days unfavourably affected the testicle weight and epididymal sperm traits variably and at some levels and the number of spermatozoa was the most profoundly affected sperm characteristics in male guinea pigs exposed to the radiation concerned.

Effect of mobile phone electromagnetic waves on rat testis and the possible ameliorating role of Naringenin : A histological study

Evaluating the effects of mobile phone use on the testes of adult rats, the progress of spontaneous recovery and the protective role of NG supplementation against these effects concluded that mobile phones might have injurious effects on testes that partially recovered after stoppage of exposure to EMW.

Effect of low-frequency electric field screening on motility of human sperm.

It was found that the ELF-EMF presented a negative effect on the motility of human spermatozoa, while the effectiveness of the dielectric screen constructed by ADR Technology ® in absorbing the emitted radiation was examined.

Sperm function is affected by the electromagnetic radiation emitted by mobile phone

A significant decrease in sperm function was showed as indicated by a decreases in sperm vitality and viability as well as sperm motility, indicating a potential decrease in male fertility.

The Morphological Effects of Methandienone on Sperm Head in Male Mice

Methadinone has the potential to increase the rate of deformity of head sperm morphology when increasing dose and duration of the drug, indicating that may be a genetic damage happened affects the stages of sperm formation.

Reply to the comment on “Exposure of human peripheral blood lymphocytes to electromagnetic fields associated with cellular phones leads to chromosomal instability”

Findings indicate that the genotoxic effect of the electromagnetic radiation is elicited via a non-thermal pathway, and the fact that aneuploidy is a phenomenon known to increase the risk for cancer, should be taken into consideration in future evaluation of exposure guidelines.
