Resumen The age dependence of the reaction of the endocrine system to variable electric fields (VEF) on long-term (up to 320 days) exposure and the character of readaptation to VEF were investigated by determining the frequency of cytological abnormalities in the thyroid and adrenal glands of white mice up to 335 days after birth. VEF (50Hz, 40kV/m) were biologically active on both 10 day and longer exposure. Long-term exposure to VEF caused a cumulative increase of thyroid gland activity. This increase in activity resulted in an increase of energy expenditure and consequently in an acceleration of body aging. The extent and direction of the reaction depend on the age of animals.
