The article contains data on the effect of electromagnetic radiation of mobile phone (900 MHz) on the lipid peroxidation processes and in particular on malondialdehyde levels at early stages of embryogenesis in loach embryos. It was observed that radiofrequency electromagnetic waves cause statistically meaningful effect depending on the exposure time and the stage of loach embryos development. The effect of microwave radiation at 1, 5, 10 to 20 minutes duration causes intense processes of lipid peroxidation at early stages of embryos development.

Keywords: microwave radiation, loach embryos, lipid peroxidation, malondialdehyde
