How the Human Body Is Affected by the Cosmic Environment   Epoch Times - July 6, 2015

Environmental variables, such as cosmic rays, solar activity, and electromagnetic waves in the Earth's atmosphere, may account for about 2-8 percent of heart rate variability. Cosmic rays have interested scientists for many different reasons. They come from all directions in space, and the origination of many of these cosmic rays is unknown. NASA's website explains Schumann resonances: There is a 'cavity' defined by the surface of the Earth and the inner edge of the ionosphere 55 kilometers [34 miles] up. ... The Schumann resonances are quasi standing wave electromagnetic waves that exist in this cavity. Like waves on a spring, they are not present all the time, but have to be excited to be observed. They are not caused by anything internal to the Earth, its crust or its core. They seem to be related to electrical activity in the atmosphere, particularly during times of intense lightning activity.
