Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) related to solar activity through the Schumann Resonance mechanism
A significant homeostatic relationship from Geomagnetic Activity (GMA) and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) was found in Ontario, Canada. A similar relationship is plausible elsewhere, but only if the size of the population produces sufficient daily SIDS cases to allow investigation of the daily rates. In Christchurch, New Zealand the population is too small so the monthly SIDS and sunspot relationship was studied to determine if the links between solar activity and SIDS rates, through the Schumann Resonance mechanism, were identifiable. Solar activity through the Schumann Resonance mechanism reduces melatonin in human populations. Reduced melatonin is associated with increased risk of SIDS. Significant correlations were found for adaptive homeostatic “U” and inverse “U” patterns between solar activity and SIDS over prolonged periods of months during 8 years, which included sunspot maximum, sunspot minimum and the transition period....
