Abstract

Experiments using sixteen male Spraque-Dawley rats were carried out to determine possible effects of Extremely Low Frequency Magnetic Field (ELF MF) on inner ear, parotis and submandibular glands. The rats were seperated into two groups of 8, one control and one experimental group. The rats in the experimental groups were exposed to ELF MF (1.35 mT) 2 hour/a day during two months. Eight rats of sham group were treated like experimental group except ELF MF exposure. The rats were sacrificed under ketalar anesthesia immediately after last exposure. Then parotis, submandibular gland and total ear of rats were removed for histopathological examination. The histopathological results obtained indicate that ELF magnetic field didn't affect parotis, submandibular glands and inner ear.
