Study Type In Vivo
Model 60 Hz exposure to pregnant rats and analysis of maturation of offspring and insulin and thyroid hormone levels.

Pregnant rats were exposed to 60 Hz (ELF) at 3 microT for 2hrs/day over the period of gestation and evaluated for both hormone and metabolite levels. Exposure resulted in decreased glucose uptake by cells and decreased T4:T3 hormone ratio in pregnant dams fed a restricted diet (which normally leads to decreased serum insulin and cortisol)
