Lunacy, says it all. Legend has it that the full moon brings out the worst in people: more violence, suicides, accidents and aggression. Some even believe during a full moon, more pregnant women go into labor.
Well now, the latest belief is that heart surgery patients recover quicker during certain lunar phases.
Here is what the study found... A lower death rate was observed following heart surgery, which takes place when the Moon is waning (getting thinner). People who have heart surgery during a full moon stay in the hospital for an average of 10 days, compared to 14 for people who have it at other times.
Now obviously not all surgeries can be performed around the full moon, but this does give the medical field a better of idea in understanding the effects of our environment.
