1 Fluctuations in natural magnetic field affecting human performance A study by Tarmo Koppel PRESENTATION at Tallinn University of Technology on

2 Lets position this topic

3 The position of this study

4 The main research question: How do fluctuations in natural magnetic field affect people? Set of secondary questions: –how many people are affected by natural EMF fluctuations –what symptoms do they endure –what makes thee people different from the rest

5 Data was collected by 1) questionnaire and 2) records from magnetic observatories

6 There are different types of fluctuations in magnetic field

7 METHOD period of 7 months magnetic field of Earth was monitored daily a questionnaire was distributed (included 44 symptoms)

8 RESULTS A total of 2037 responses were collected Six events of high fluctuations in magnetic field were selected to study on

9 RESULTS DETAILED RESULTS NOT PUBLISHED YET

10 Most reported symptoms fatigue drowsiness during the day dizziness waking up still tired sleep disturbances DETAILED RESULTS NOT PUBLISHED YET

11 An unexpected finding! older people report less symptoms than younger in the aspect of EMFs - what makes younger people to report more symptoms DETAILED RESULTS NOT PUBLISHED YET

12 A more detailed view on age group segmented symptoms DETAILED RESULTS NOT PUBLISHED YET

13 CONCLUSIONS why am I having those symptoms, cause I never had before ? The mechanics of exposure to electromagnetic fields – they accumulate

14 we are in a unique situation We have had never so much EMFs

15 Now, natural EMFs have more effect on person

16 This study formed a new hypothesis younger people reported more symptoms because they use more elctronic devices – therefore are more exposed to the EMFs therefore a higher sensitivity to EMFs has developed

17 Strengths of this study a large volume of respondents (2000+) an ample time series (7months) studied not only 1 but 6 events results give an estimate of people being affected by the phenomenon indicates gender differences raises a new interesting hypothesis

18 Weaknesses of this study an open-access survey (not a cross-section of the society) self-reported data (it’s a questionnaire, not a medical examination) lacks of details profiling affected people (does not provide detailed info on persons being affected)
