Saoedi-ArabiŽ: Straling mobiele telefonie kan ''verwoestend'' zijn voor algehele gezondheid.

Recent onderzoek bij ratten geeft aan dat straling van mobiele telefonie (3 maanden 60 min. per dag) het testosteron gehalte aanzienlijk vermindert hetgeen volgens de onderzoekers ''verwoestende'' gevolgen kan hebben op het vermogen tot voortplanting en op de algehele gezondheid.

Abstract
OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effects of electromagnetic field radiation generated by mobile phones on serum testosterone levels in Wistar albino rats.

METHODS: This experimental interventional control study was conducted in the Department of Physiology, College of Medicine, King Saud University, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia during the period December 2006 to April 2008. A total of 34 male Albino rats Wistar strain, 2 months of age, weighing 150-160 gm were used for the experiment.

These animals were divided into 3 groups. The first group containing 6 rats was assigned as a control group. The second group containing 14 rats was exposed to mobile phone radiation for 30 minutes daily and the third group containing 14 rats was exposed to mobile phone radiation for 60 minutes daily for the total period of 3 months.

At the end of experimental period, blood was collected into the container, and serum testosterone was analyzed using double-antibody radioimmunoassay method by Coat-A-Count.

RESULTS: Exposure to mobile phone radiation for 60 minutes/day for the total period of 3 months significantly decrease the serum testosterone level p=0.028 in Wistar Albino rats compared to their matched control.

CONCLUSION: Long-term exposure to mobile phone radiation leads to reduction in serum testosterone levels. Testosterone is a primary male gender hormone and any change in the normal levels may be devastating for reproductive and general health.
