The Possible Effects of the Solar and Geomagnetic Activity on Multiple Sclerosis

PUB MED JOURNALS OBJECTIVES: Increasing observational evidence on the biological effects of Space Weather suggests that geomagnetic disturbances may be an environmental risk factor for multiple sclerosis (MS) relapses. In the present study, we aim to investigate the possible effect of geomagnetic disturbances on MS activity. PATIENTS AND METHODS: MS patient admittance

Geomagnetic Storms and Mental Disturbances

Last week on Wednesday, March 11, 2015 the Sun blasted us with a direct hit from a powerful solar flare that wiped out a huge amount of radio communication, according to NOAA’s Space Weather Prediction Center. Mike Wall of Space.com writes: “The Wednesday flare registered as an X2.2 sun storm on

The impact of solar flares on the human mood and psyche

COMMUNITIES DIGITAL NEWS With last weeks strong solar activity, maybe it is time to wear tin foil on our heads. With high electromagnetic activity from the sun coming this way, our human electromagnetic fields may start glowing. Even if we do not begin incandescing, scientists have noticed correlations between solar flares and

Geomagnetic Storms may Influence Risk of Stroke

More strokes happen when geomagnetic storms are afoot, according to a new review of stroke literature - although it’s not clear what protective measures anyone could take, researchers said. Geomagnetic storms happen when the Earth’s magnetic field is disturbed by solar winds or coronal mass ejections, which throw out powerful magnetic
