Background and Purpose: Determination of the effect of an expensive and non-absorbable element named as gold on spermatogenesis can justify the reason for its being religiously unlawful for men.
Materials and Methods: 36 male Rats were divided into three groups. After the animals were made anesthetized, at the back of neck of group I, a piece of gold measuring 2x1 cm and similarly non-absorbable plastic was attached to the back of neck of second group. Neither a metal nor anything was placed on the third group. Place of cut was sutured. After first and third months, animals were made anesthetised and specimens were taken from testis and were stained with H&E staining and were examined for the structure of seminiferous tubules with the help of image tool-2 software.
Results: There was no significant change in the somniferous tubules or interstitial tissue of all three groups were found.
Conclusion: Probably gold in not unlawful for its organic effect but might be prohibited as an ornamenful object for men.
