Background and Objectives: In the industrial world everyone is unavoidably exposed to ambient Electromagnetic Field (EMF) generated from various technical and household appliances. The aim of this study was to investigate the diminishing effects of Allium cepa on uterus cell injury induced by EMF. Material and Methods: In this experimental study, 40 rat were selected and kept for one week in quarantine and 20 rats subdivided to two groups were exposed to 40 Hz (non-ionizing radiation, 0.1 tesla) for 6 weeks, one of this exposed group received 3cc /Rat Allium cepa juice, other experimental group just received only 3cc/Rat Allium cepa,the control group just received 3cc water by gavage method. The materials were processed and observed apoptosis under a light microscope by tunel method. Results: In the experimental rats apoptotic cells showed significantly increased in EMF groups, but in exposed group that received Allium cepa,apoptotic cells and serum MDA were decreased and SOD was increased respectively (P<0.05). Conclusion: since in this study EMF could be induces cell injury on uterus tissue, using 3 cc Allium cepa juice has antioxidative effects on uterus tissue by reduced apoptosis.
