The Impact of Electromagnetic Waves at the Full Moon on Some Physiological Changes among the Students of the Faculty of Sport Sciences at Mu'tah University

Abstract

This study aims to identify the impact of electromagnetic waves at the full moon on some physiological changes among the students of the Faculty of Sport Sciences at Mu'tah University. The study sample consisted of 20 students from the Faculty of Sport Sciences at Mu'tah University. Many statistical methods have been used in order to answer the questions of the study (Means, standard deviations, T-Test Independent Samples, Pearson correlation coefficient. The results of (T-Test Independent Samples) for the significance of the pre and post difference showed that there are statistically significant differences for the variables of (heart pulse, blood glucose, systolic pressure and diastolic pressure). The results of Pearson correlation coefficient test for the pre and post measurement also showed that there are statistically significant differences for the physiological variable of (blood glucose) with regard to the variable of age. The study recommended not to rely on the reading of the heart pulse during the days of the full moon as an indicator of the heart pulse, especially for females. The study also recommends to conduct similar studies in different places of hot and cold climates or high and low altitudes .

Introduction

Since the earliest periods of the time, man started studying the sky and its contents, he was driven by the metaphysical conviction that the sky has an absolute control over the earth, Man also used to believe that the nature is one and the energy that drives everything is also one. Thus, every movement in this universe has its impact and consequences on man and his surroundings . The effect of the moon on the human being is constant throughout the ages, and most of the civilizations contain references to this subject although they differ with regard to the importance of the impact that the planets have on man. (Mohsen, 2010)

Man is influenced by the powers of attraction of electromagnetic waves which organize and regulate the movement of the whole universe; where the gravitational force that comes from the center of our galaxy overweighs the electromagnetic energy that is emitted from the core of the earth beneath our feet by more than ten thousand times. The moon is also considered as the nearest celestial object to the earth ; it affects all the living beings more than any other planet. The influence of the moon is clear and evident by the phenomenon of tides of oceans and seas, and this is well-known to man since the ancient times, but its impact on man, animals and plants wasn't known until recently. (Sa'adia , 2013)

It has been scientifically proven that the moon affects the activities and behaviors of the human beings in an evident and significant degree. When the moon is complete it causes a mental disorder for some people making them closer to insanity in which those people may cause harm to themselves and to others without realizing that, but after a while the moon phase changes, those people return back to their normal situation. The moon also affects the plants at the times of their cultivation harvest and in the seasons of fertilization. It also affects animals in the times of fertilization. Just as the moon draws the water of seas and oceans, it also affects the liquids inside the human body, animals and plants in which it changes the combination and efficiency of liquids in the human beings, such as blood, secretions of glands, and so on since the human body is composed of about 70 % of water.( , 2012)

Researchers in the Center for Health Sciences at the University of South Florida (2004) within their scientific reviews for the relationship between the full moon organic diseases have stated that, there are many medical studies that attempted to understand the relationship between the phases of the appearance of the moon and the injuries of heart strokes, the birth rates, and the attempts of committing suicide, as well as the high need to admission to hospitals as a result of irritation state of the psychiatric patients and epileptic seizures attacks. …
