When it's full moon, beware: the people will leave the town red, dogs will bite, thieves — stealing and killer — to kill. So? Or is it not? It turns out that contrary to popular belief, the probability of such types of behavior during a full moon is not higher than in any other night, in other words, scientists from the University of Saskatchewan has shown that the full moon does not change the behavior of people and animals. Ivan Kelly, head of the new study, published on the subject and analyzed 15 works, many hundreds of other authors. It found no reliable evidence of this impact — "research contradict each other — one denies the other."

The full moon has always been considered the cause of unusual phenomena

For example, two studies published in the issue of the British Medical Journal on 23 December 2003 gave different answers to the question of whether more bite animals on the full moon. So employees Bradford Royal Infirmary (Bradford Royal insulator) analyzed data on patients admitted to them with bites, 1997-1999, found that the likelihood of being bitten Moon is almost twice as high as usual. But Simon Chapman from the University of Sydney has done similar work on data on income bitten in the hospital in Australia during the year — and found no such correlation. Moreover, he found that the number of the full moon in the night bite was even lower than the average, and peak bites accounted for the Christmas holidays. Similar conflicting results have been published, and on the number of violence, arrests and suicides in the full moon. Therefore, the scientist concluded that talk about the signs of the direct influence of the full moon on the behavior of humans and animals is not necessary.
