People should pay less attention to solar activity and magnetic storms, to avoid problems with the well-being caused by auto-suggestion, deputy director of the Russian Hydrometeorological Center for Science Gennady Eliseev.
"The activity of the Sun continues, magnetic storms quite regularly, but my opinion — here you need to pay less attention to avoid self-hypnosis" — Elisha said at a news conference at RIA Novosti.
According to him, magnetic storms, of course, affect the operation of electronic equipment, but the scientific evidence of a significant impact on the health and well-being is not enough.
"This may be more due to the auto-suggestion," — said Elisha.
