Lunar Cycles

Jun 4, 2018

For as long as humans have looked up into the night sky, the moon has caused people to behave in strange ways. One of the most peculiar is the tendency for people to correlate phases of moon with various human behaviors. Lunar cycles have been claimed to affect homicide rates, traffic accidents, suicides, the birth of babies, assaults, emergency room visits, casino payout rates, and psychiatric admissions. The only crazy thing here is that scientific studies have failed to show any reliable significant correlation of these events with lunar phases.
