The extravagant use of mobile phones in recent years has attained the focus on research activities by many scientists to determine the effects of exposure to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) produced by mobile phones. In present study, we investigated the effect of Aegle marmelos (Am) on Mobile Phone induced oxidative stress in brain and testis of Mice. Mice were exposed to 900-1800 MHz EMR from Mobile phones for 7 days (1 h/day). In the EMR+Am groups, mice were exposed to EMR and pretreated with Am. In the control and Am groups’ mice were kept without exposure. Subsequently, lipid peroxidation and pathological changes in tissues were examined for each group. Oxidative damage was prevented by Am treatment, Furthermore, Am prevented the Mobile phone induced tissue damage in both the tissues histopathologically. The protective activities of  Aegle marmelos which is caused by EMR radiations may have potential implication in the future for prevention/protection against oxidative stress induced by mobile phones.


Keywords: Aegle marmelos, EMR, Mobile phone, Oxidative stress.
