Effect of Pulsed Magnetic Fields on Cholesterol and Tryglyceride Levels in Rats Study of Field Intensity and Length of Exposure

  • A. Bellossi , V. Pouvreau-Quillien , C. Rocher and M. Ruelloux


In a previous work a decrease in cholesterol and triglyceride plasma levels was observed in rats 24 hours after their exposure to a 12 Hz 6 mT pulsed magnetic field (PMF). This time, a study of intensity effects of a 12 Hz PMF for a sixty-minute exposure and of length of exposure for a 12 Hz 6 mT PMF took place. Non-linear effect-dose relationships were ob­ served for the PMF intensity as well as for the length of exposure used. The highest decreases in cholesterol and triglyceride levels were obtained after to a sixty-minute exposure with 1.5 mT and 12 mT.
