Effects of long-term exposure to 900 megahertz electromagnetic field on heart morphology and biochemistry of male adolescent rats

" Biochemical analysis showed increased levels of malondialdehyde and superoxide dismutase, and reduced glutathione and catalase levels. hematoxylin and eosin stained sections from exhibited structural changes and capillary congestion in the myocardium. the percentage of apoptotic myocardial cells was higher. transmission electron microscopy showed altered structure of Z bands, decreased myofilaments and pronounced vacuolization. we found that exposure of male rats to 900 MHz EMF for 1 h/day during adolescence caused oxidative stress, which caused structural alteration of male adolescent rat heart tissue."
