Background and Objectives: Increasing blood lipids is one of the mortality factors in human communities. In this study the effects of extremely low frequency electromagnetic field (EMF) exposure on the lipid profile (total cholesterol, triglycerides, LDL and HDL) in 48 male rabbits with normal diet and hyper-cholesterol diet were investigated.

Methods: This study was experimentally conducted on 48 New Zealand adult male rabbits. The rabbits in control groups, C1 (normal diet) and C3 (hyper-cholesterol diet), were not exposed to any electromagnetic field. Sham exposed groups male rabbits, containing C2 (normal diet) and C4 (hyper-cholesterol diet) were exposed to sham stimulated (without electromagnetic stimulation) for 5 days, 2 hours per day, and the rabbits in the treatment groups, including T1 (normal diet) and T2 (hyper-cholesterol diet), were treated with triangular form 10 Hz of electromagnetic field for 5 days, 2 hours per day. Immediately after the mentioned period, blood samples were obtained from ear vein, and levels of so-called factors were measured. Acquired data were compared with statistical method of One-Way ANOVA.

Results: In the exposed groups, the levels of Total cholesterol, Triglycerides, and LDL were significantly decreased compared with the control groups; and the amount of HDL was significantly mounted (p<0.05).

Conclusion: The results acquired indicate extremely low frequency triangular electromagnetic field can positively alter the levels of serum lipids both in rabbits with normal diet and rabbits with hyper lipid diet.
