ABSTRACT

Background: Today, the use of devices emitted microwave radiation such as mobile phones, Wi-Fi routers, etc. is increased rapidly. It has caused a great concern about the health effects of EMFs. Therefore should attempt to fully understand different aspects of the health effects of EMF exposure.In this study evaluate the protective role of Vitamin C on the metabolic and enzymatic activities of the liver in the male rats after exposure to 2.45 GHz of Wi-Fi routers.
Material and Methods: In this study, 70 male Wistar rats weighing 200 to 250 g were randomly divided into 7 groups (10 rats in each group). Group A received vitamin C (250mg kg-1 day orally) and8- hour Wi-Fi exposure only for one day. Group B were treated as group A, but they didn’t receive vitamin C. Group C, received only vitamin C for one day. Control group or group D was neither exposed to radiation of Wi-Fi router nor did received vitamin C. Group E receive just vitamin C for 5 days. Group F was only exposed to Wi-Fi radiation for 8 hours / day for 5 days .Finally, group G received vitamin C and was exposed to Wi-Fi radiation for 8 hours / day for 5 days. The Wi-Fi modem was placed at the distance of 20 cm away from animals restrainers. Finally, blood sampling was performed and the level hepatic enzymes including ALP, ALT, ASL, GGT and the concentration of Blood Glucose, Cholesterol and TG, HDL-c, LDL-c, were measured in all groups.
Results: The results showed that, Wi-Fi exposure  together with  vitamin C during 1 day can lead to significant differences on the blood Glucose , TG and GGT factors in groups (A,D) (p=0.01), Wi-Fi exposure and during  a day can  cause significant differences on GLU and TG levels  in groups ( B,D) and  the amount of HDL in groups (A, B) was also significant(P=0.03) . In addition, we demonstrated that Wi-Fi exposure during 5 day can cause significant differences on the level of BG, TG, Chol and also the amount of HDL in groups (D, F) (p=0.0001).
Conclusion: Wi-Fi exposure can cause  changes in activity level of hepatic enzymes, but the use of vitamin C protects them from these changes.
