Abstract

Background: there is a great concern for the possible adverse effects of cell phones and noise waves and it looks these weaves effects on the individuals’ health. Thus, the present study was conducted to examine the effect of cell phone waves, severity noise, and simultaneous effect of cell phone waves and severity noise on sperm motility and sexual
hormones in adult male rats.
Methods: this experimental study was performed on twenty eight Wistar adult male rats (200-250 gr). The animals were randomly assigned to four groups (n=7): control group, two-week exposure to cell phone simulated waves group, exposure to noise group, and simultaneous exposure to cell phone simulated waves and sound group. The means of
sperm motility in all groups were determined with criterions of WHO and sexual hormones concentration of blood plasma in all groups were determined by RIA. The results were analyzed by one-way ANOVA statistical technique followed by Tukey test using SPSS (version 16)
software.
Results: sperm motility in the exposure to cell phone simulated waves and simultaneous exposure to cell phone simulated waves and noise groups decreased significantly compared to control group (P<0.05) . The testosterone hormone concentration of blood plasma in all exposure groups decreased significantly compared to control group (P<0.05).
Conclusion: exposure to cell phone waves and simultaneous exposure to cell phone simulated waves and sharp noise can cause a significant decrease in sperm motility and also, can cause a significant decrease the testosterone hormone concentration in adult male rats resulting in abnormality fertility.
