"Scientific studies have identified the link between the full moon and extremes in human behaviour. In a recent paper, The Lunar Cycle: Effects on Human and Animal Behaviour and Physiology, Michal Zimecki, of the Polish Academy of Sciences, analysed studies that took into account lunar activity. He claimed that a full moon could affect criminal activity and health, leading to an increase in crime and admissions to hospital. He said that the effects were so marked that it “may be helpful in police surveillance and medical practice”. In 1998 a three-month psychological study of 1,200 inmates in the maximum security wing at Armley jail, Leeds, discovered a rise in violent incidents in the days before and after a full moon. ....... People are also more likely to be or to feel ill. Research at Leeds University found that the number of requests for GP consultations rose by 3.6 per cent when the moon was full." Same occurs for crime, murder, accidents, stomach ruptures, and seizures, etc. up to 100% of ER admissions occur during the full moon, mental hospitals go into lockdown and Police in Brighton are sent on patrol more to 'battle full moon violence' gravity can do some odd things to biological things.. EDIT full moon produces POSITIVE IONS during its full phase.. this can affect blood, biochemistry in the body and the electrical impulses in the brain and cause sickness Unfortunately there is no known cure for this well known syndrome. Our bodies are made up of more than 60% water, and the drawing qualities of the full moon affect some people more than others. The fluids in the body are disturbed and this is felt in particular in the cerebra spinal fluids causing pressure on the brain..
