Does the moon affect our mood or actions?

Post by Guest on Sun May 08, 2016 11:27 am

Are children like werewolves? Study of children's sleeping patterns over lunar cycles.

Always surrounded by an aura of mystery, the moon and its possible influence over human behavior has been object of ancestral fascination and mythical speculation for centuries. While the full moon cannot turn people into werewolves, some people do accuse it of causing a bad night's sleep or creating physical and mental alterations. But is there any science behind these myths?

To establish if lunar phases somehow do affect humans, an international group of researchers studied children to see if their sleeping patterns changed or if there were any differences in their daily activities. The results were published in Frontiers in Pediatrics.

"We considered that performing this research on children would be particularly more relevant because they are more amenable to behavior changes than adults and their sleep needs are greater than adults," said Dr. Jean-Philippe Chaput, from the Eastern Ontario Research Institute.

The study was completed on a total of 5812 children from five continents. The children came from a wide range of economic and sociocultural levels, and variables such as age, sex, highest parental education, day of measurement, body mass index score, nocturnal sleep duration, level of physical activity and total sedentary time were considered.

Data collection took place over 28 months, which is equivalent to the same number of lunar cycles. These were then subdivided into three lunar phases: full moon, half-moon and new moon. The findings obtained in the study revealed that in general, nocturnal sleep duration around full moon compared to new moon reported an average decrease of 5 minutes (or a 1% variant). No other activity behaviors were substantially modified.

"Our study provides compelling evidence that the moon does not seem to influence people's behavior. The only significant finding was the 1% sleep alteration in full moon, and this is largely explained by our large sample size that maximizes statistical power," said Chaput.The clinical implication of sleeping 5 minutes less during full moon does not represent a considerable threat to health. "Overall, I think we should not be worried about the full moon. Our behaviors are largely influenced by many other factors like genes, education, income and psychosocial aspects rather than by gravitational forces," he added.

While the results of this study are conclusive, controversy over the moon could result in further research to determine if our biology is in some way synchronized with the lunar cycle or if the full moon has a larger influence in people suffering mental disorders or physical ailments.

"Folklore and even certain instances of occupational lore suggest that mental health issues or behaviors of humans and animals are affected by lunar phases. Whether there is science behind the myth or not, the moon mystery will continue to fascinate civilizations in the years to come," he said.

I would say women can be already moody during their cycle.
You are offering nothing as to saying otheriwse, just an opinion you have Eddie.
I am sure the people who study this have spent far longer looking into than yoiu have ever done.

I didn't mention women's moods.
Read it properly you thick c@nt.

And you have absolutely no idea at all about menstrual cycles, or do you have a pretend degree in that as well?

Well I am going to leave you with that Didge.
And when a little scientist writes a little article, that says it does, and you post it up under a new ID (probably your 15th or so) I'll remind you of what you said here.

I could post up loads of evidence but instead I'm going to just say:
Ignorant c@nt. No wonder you're on your own mate.

A hell of a lot of talk and zero action to back up your off the charts claims.

Well at least we know its acceptable to use such language now, being as a Mod can do so

Really. Makes you laugh does it?
Well of course it does Didge. Of course it does.

Did you laugh when someone contacted your very place of employment to report you?

But Eddie, that had zero impact on me or my work, you stillhave this itch though which you deny yourself from scratching.
Which is your failing, because you are too afraid to speak up
Again I find it hilarious and could not happen to a more deserving person

Have you actually googled the moon and its affects Didge or did you do what you always do, and get some article and make like you're clever and you understood it?

It was a JOKE actually but I know you don't always get jokes.

Lunatic comes from the word "lunar"

Did you not know that?

In your own time.

It was a JOKE actually but I know you don't always get jokes.

Lunatic comes from the word "lunar"

Did you not know that?

In your own time.


No of course not Eddie, that is why I posted this thread to show a study that has gone to lenghs to show it has little effects on humans.

Did you read it or as per usual ignore the evidence?

Also it does not come from Lunar either, that was a later variation

From your own link


Where Belief Begins
So if the lunar lunacy effect is merely an astronomical and psychological urban legend, why is it so widespread? There are several probable reasons. Media coverage almost surely plays a role. Scores of Hollywood horror flicks portray full-moon nights as peak times of spooky occurrences such as stabbings, shootings and psychotic behaviors.
Perhaps more important, research demonstrates that many people fall prey to a phenomenon that University of Wisconsin–Madison psychologists Loren and Jean Chapman termed “illusory correlation”—the perception of an association that does not in fact exist. For example, many people who have joint pain insist that their pain increases during rainy weather, although research disconfirms this assertion. Much like the watery mirages we observe on freeways during hot summer days, illusory correlations can fool us into perceiving phenomena in their absence.
