Introduction: There are conflicting reports concerning the effects of magnetic fields (MF) on different aspects of vitality. We have studied the effects of a 0.05 Tesla MF on the growth and blood glucose levels of mice. Materials and methods: Twenty-two young BALB/C strain mice were divided into two groups. The experimental group was exposed to a constant homogenous MF of 0.05 Tesla inductance for ten hours a day for ten days. The MF was induced by two blades of permanent magnets. The control group were in similar conditions except for MF exposure. The weight of both groups were measured ten days before, during and ten days after the experiment. Following this, the experimental group was again exposed to the same MF for fifteen days. Then blood sampling from both groups was done by decapitation. Results: Weight gain of the exposed group was 0.30.03 (MeanSEM) grams per day which was insignificantly higher than the control group (0.250.03 gram per day). There was no significant difference in the blood glucose levels of the two groups (114.38.81 mg/dL vs 113.814.64 mg/dL). Conclusions: Previous reports indicate that constant MFs of 0.001 and 0.01 Tesla induced by electromagent increase blood glucose levels. There are similar reports about the effects of 0.9 Tesla MF on weight loss. These experiments lack control for mechanical or sonic frequency vibrations or temperature produced by electromagnets. We conclude that constant MF with theintensity s we used has no dangerous effect on growth and blood glucose levels.
Keywords: blood glucose level, weight gain, Constant magnetic field.
