One of the key things to look for with solar activity, is the 11-year solar cycle, which usually ends with a bunch of dramatic things like mass ejections of the sun's corona, solar flares, heatwaves - and huge increases in mortalities, heart attacks and severe episodes of mental illness.
A Washington Times article from a couple of years' back noted that the Russian Institute of North Industrial Ecology Problems (INEP), had found that:
“From 1949-1997…. geomagnetic activity showed three seasonal peaks each of those years (March to May, in July, and in October). Every peak matched an increased incidence of anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and suicide in the city Kirovsk.”
According to this article on disinfo.com: More on Solar Storms and Major Mental Illness
Many studies have theorized on the relationship between increased solar activity and it’s effect on melatonin production in the pineal gland of the brain. Melatonin is essential in maintaining circadian rhythm – the 24-hour sleep-wake cycle that is essential to our well-being.
HELIOBIOLOGY AND RUSSIANS
The Russian medical community has been far ahead of the West in exploring the more holistic side to human health. Heliobiology, the study of the sun's impact on human health, was begun in Russia more than a hundred years ago. The following excerpt comes from The Great Soviet Encyclopedia (1979):
The following excerpt comes from a paper called: Are stress responses to geomagnetic storms mediated by the cryptochrome compass system' by scientist James Close, which you can read for yourself HERE.

TO SUM THINGS UP:
There is already a huge body of research, most of which has been completely ignored by narrow-minded Western medicine, that shows that solar flares, solar storms, and the 11 year solar cycle have a massive impact on human health.
When there is a lot of solar activity, 5% more people die a year, 36% more people are admitted to hospital because of serious depression, there are more flu pandemics, more e-coli outbreaks, the number of people having heart-attacks go up (myocardial infarctions are another name for heart-attacks), the number of people having strokes go up, the number of people feeling completely and utterly stressed out of the skulls go up - and it's all linked to how we, as electric people, interact with the the increased solar energy being shot down at planet earth.
In turn, when people feel more stressed out / anxious / depressed / ill etc - they start thinking and acting in crazy ways. Wars start, arguments begin...
So now we're starting to figure out the connections a little more between solar / geomagnetic activity and human health and behaviour, what can we actually DO about it?
I hope to start answering that in the next posts.
