Scientists from the Russian Academy of Sciences warned that March 18 will cover the Earth a powerful magnetic storm that will disrupt satellites, GPS navigation and power grids on the planet, writes Your News Wire.
Before this period, the magnetosphere since the end of February to mid-March.
At this time, it is recommended to drink more fluids and do not use electrical equipment.
“Sleep more, don’t abuse coffee, alcohol and heavy food,” recommends therapist Victoria Poroshenko.
Magnetic storm, which will reach Earth on March 18, will be the third since the beginning of this year. The first was registered on 15 January, the second February 19.
What is a geomagnetic storm?
Geomagnetic storms is the fluctuation of Earth’s magnetic field, caused by the increasing solar wind and shock waves.
As a result of solar flares into space is thrown a huge number of protons and electrons, which for a couple of days to reach the earth’s atmosphere at speeds up to 1000 km/s.
Too strong a stream of solar wind and its charged particles causes a rapid and strong changes in the characteristics of the magnetic field. These fluctuations can feel people and animals.
How does it affect people?
Magnetic storms often affect the health and wellbeing of people. They are dangerous primarily to those who suffer from arterial hypertension and hypotension, heart disease.
Approximately 70% of heart attacks, hypertensive crises and strokes occur during solar storms.
Magnetic storms are often accompanied by headaches, migraines, palpitations, insomnia, malaise, low vitality, pressure drops.
Scientists attribute this to the fact that when the oscillations of the magnetic field slows capillary blood flow and oxygen to the tissues.
The negative effects of magnetic storms exposed 50-75% of the population.
However, many people are starting to not respond to magnetic storms, and 1-2 days before them, that is, at the time of flares on the Sun.
