Circadian study is also another common topic subject to discussion in such a manner that the conclusion arises:
Light of very low intensity can indeed [or of different property] bear an effect of circadian pacemakers, particularly with the most harmful effect among plants and insects. Some would say 5 photons per second per eye for 12 hours alternating with 12 hours of darkness is suffecient of also inclimation due to moonlit effectives, to entrain normal wheel-running activity rhythms of Periplanata. Human circadian cycles have been shown to alter indebivishing 200 to 500 flux, yet that such human studies were conducted in a manner comparable to a 24-hour included with the allowance of moonlight. Previous studies show that the disruptance of the circadian cycle rhythms is related directly to the intensity of moonlight during such a phase is administered.
While it is well known that plants and insects are most prone to dangerous effects of over-exposure to moonlight, humans have been studied much less and with less detail. As for previous endeavors, humans have not shown too much of an effect on an observable cellular level. However, the point of my experiment is to observe the effects of moonlight on humans on a much broader level. Going off the basis of previous experiments, I have designed something easily repeatable and understandable to any proponent.
I have recorded various vital details of my being on three days with no moonlight exposure at night following my sleep and three nights fully exposed to the moonlight. In such a basic test, I aimed to show correlation between health of light exposures of the lunas body.
My two recordings for each day occured prior to falling to a state of sleep, and immediately afterwards.
No moonlight Exposure:
Night 1: Temp 98.2 F BP 120/77 Pulse 60 bpm
Morning 1: Temp 98.0 F BP 115/78 Pulse 55 bpm
Night 2: Temp 98.6 F BP 123/79 Pulse 62 bpm
Morning 2: Temp 98.5 F BP 119/79 Pulse 59 bpm
Night 3: Temp 98.0 BP 117/76 Pulse 59 bpm
Morning 3: Temp 98.0 BP 117/74 Pulse 59 bpm
Night 1: Temp 98.7 F BP 122/78 Pulse 61 bpm
Morning 1: Temp 98.8 F BP 125/82 Pulse 65 bpm
Night 2: Temp 98.5 F BP 118/80 Pulse 58 bpm
Morning 2: Temp 98.5 F BP 121/82 Pulse 59 bpm
Night 3: Temp 98.3 BP 116/77 Pulse 58 bpm
Morning 3: Temp 98.6 BP 124/83 Pulse 62 bpm
Most peculiar is that moonlight exposure causes a rise in blood pressure. It is well-known that some of the most accurate BP readings occur right as someone wakes up and at that event, the BP will be shown for the most part to stay lower than that of a daily average. However, this experiment has shown otherwise and has given evidence that the moonlight causes negative effects on organisms. This includes humans. To say otherwise would be silly and a bit foolish considering the supporting data. However, these experiments and peer-reviewed articles mentioned should not be considered as insight to the extent of damage given from moonlight. The main conclusion is that there is
a damaging effect that occurs.
