In 1969 David Cohen noticed a magnetic field set up by the brain up to a few inches around the head. Electricity is used when the brain receives messages from the nerves and when it processes information. When the heart contracts it emits a wave of between one and three cycles per second and this electrical activity creates a magnetic field around the heart. The entire body acts as a rather weak radio transmitter.
The body's electromagnetic field may be adversely affected by electromagnetic activity in the environment. This can be demonstrated by those who study geobiology and bioentrainment. Dr Solco Tromp of the Biometeorological Research Centre in Leiden has claimed that people leave behind a discernible and measurable electrostatic aura when they have been in a room. Tromp found that incidents of suicide in the Netherlands tend to cluster around periods when there is a sudden change in the weather. Other studies have found correlations between such weather changes and heart disease, between solar activity peaks, geomagnetic agitation and heart failure. The opposite has also been found; a reduction in heart failure cases coincides with a period of relatively calm sunspot activity.
