Abstract

THE PROTECTIVE EFFECT OF GARLIC AND CURCUMIN AGAINST THE HARMFUL RADIATION PRODUCED FROM POWER STATION OF MOBILE PHONE

El-Shahat A. Toson*, Arafa Belal and Eyman Mansour

ABSTRACT

The intense about how the radiation emitted from cellular phone base station can harm healthy workers and residents near it was increased significantly. Therefore, this study was designed to study the protective effect of garlic and curcumin against the harmful radiation produced from power station of mobile phone. This study was performed using 62 adult Wistar animals were divided into four groups; namely, normal rats (n=10)(group I), rats, exposed to the stations, energy for 24 hours/day for 8 weeks (n=18)(group II), those which were exposed and treated with curcumin (n=12) (group III), aqueous garlic powder (n=12) (group IV), or their combination(n=11) (group V). Results: The mean activity of superoxide dismutase and that of total antioxidant capacity and the mean level of glutathione reduced form were significantly in the exposed group (group II) decreased when compared with those of the control group (I) (p<0.03, p<0.0004 and p<0.04, respectively). On the other hand, SOD activities of the treated groups (IV and V) were significantly increased when compared with that of the exposed rats (p3<0.003 and p4<0.001). Also, GSH content of liver tissue homogenate of the groups III, IV and V increased in compared to exposed group(P2<0.01, P3<0.05, P4<0.007). Moreover, the the mean activity of total antioxidant capacity of the exposed and that of exposed and treated with curcumin, garlic and the mixture of garlic and curcmin (P2<0.02, P3<0.002, P4<0.000008). From the previous results, it was concluded that, radiofrequency emitted from mobile phone base stations can induce inflammation and oxidative stress exegravation in rats but it was possible to reduce this harmful effect by using antioxidants in our dietary meals.

Keywords: Radiofrequency, oxidative stress, antioxidants, curcumin, aquous garlic extract.
