Dasdag S, Akdag MZ, Aksen F, Yilmaz F, et al. (2003).

This study investigated the effect of RF radiation emitted from cellular phones on testicular function in rats. Eight animals were exposed to radiation from a 900 MHz cellular phone placed 0.5 cm under their cage for 20 minutes per day for one month. Another eight rats were sham-exposed. The whole body average SAR was 0.52 W/kg.

No statistically significant difference was found in biochemical or immunological function of the testis. Similarly there was no observed difference in the microscopic appearance of the gland or in sperm count or appearance.

The number of animals in this study is small.
