AbstractThis Study had been conducted to evaluate the side effects of radiation that resulting from microwave oven on some physiological, biological and histological features of 24 local male rabbits with age of 1-1.5 years . Rabbits were divided into 4 groups (6 rabbits for each group). The first group was given the standard ration (Control group), the second group was given the standard ration with Sesamum indicum seeds in concentration 1000 mg/kg ration, the third group was given ration exposed to microwave’s radiation for two minutes, the fourth group was given ration exposed to microwave’s radiation added to it sesame seeds in a concentration 1000 mg/kg ration daily for 4 weeks and all groups were given water freely.
The results showed a significant decrease in blood glucose, cholesterol, and low density lipoprotein LDL-C as well as a significant increase in high density lipoprotein HDL-C and testosterone hormone in group that treated with sesame seeds comparison with control.
The group that treated with ration exposed to microwave’s radiation showed a significant increase in glucose, cholesterol, and LDL-C as well as a significant decrease in HDL-C and Testosterone in serum comparison with control.The results in fourth group were near from the levels of the control group. Histological sections showed some changes of studied tissue, the testes showed increasing the number of cell layer lining the seminiferous tubules in second group comparison with control, the dealing with ration exposed to microwave’s radiation led to decreasing in cell layer number lining the seminiferous tubules comparison with control.
