||The widespread use of polymeric materials (textiles, construction materials, plastics) under conditions which promote the accumulation of static electric charges means that workers may be exposed to unnaturally high fields. To determine the effects of static fields, mice were subjected to static electric fields up to 700V/cm in intensity for 2h, after which testicular tissue was examined for chromosomal aberrations. 700V/cm produced both chromosomal aberrations and reduced spermatogenesis; 300V/cm had similar but less pronounced effects, while 150V/cm produced no changes. Thus, 300V/cm is a threshold exposure level.
