Not a few hospitals, academic and scientific figures believed that "full moon" brings discord in the system of nature, concealing a darker, diabolical tendency among human psyches. Further studies aim to tear the sheet that blurs the line between reality and fantasy of such claim.

Ever since the Middle Ages, the full moon have been made popular by cultural beliefs as it has been associated with the diabolical occurrences of nature freaks like Werewolves, Witches, etc. Lunacy, from which it has been radically extracted, describes the full moon's direct effect to human behavior. It even goes beyond human subjects, taking control of terrestrial phenomena.

The latest recorded incidents that happened among hospitals all over America startled academics, doctors and scientists with the "spookiness" of their nature. Consequentially, many were instantaneously jolted from their seats and eventually urged to revisit the scientific premises of a full moon, as well as its effects on us humans, the Wall Street Journal reported.

The heat on the "full moon" topic started circulating the web after the Journal collecting and publishing anecdotes from regular ER staff and nurses. Subsequently, a most notable report by a nurse involves a busload of food-poisoned teenagers and a stillborn baby born under the full moon. All these, the nurse treated on the same occurrence of the said full moon, Refinery 29 reported.

Addressing the possible hysteria that could likely spark from the heat of the "full moon" news, Jean-Luc Margot of the University of California, Los Angeles, published a paper last year in a Nursing research magazine from which he insisted that there was no definite correlation between the moon phases and the incidents recorded in the hospitals.

Albeit very plausible events in history pointing the moon as the culprit, science is yet to carry the significance of the moon phases in its tread. Apparently, there are reasonable ways that the moon really does affect human behavior. The premises for these theories however are surprisingly more scientific that fantastical, Bustle reported.

Here are possible ways that the "full moon" can actually affect human behavior and earthly phenomena:

1. The human body is made of 70% water. If the moon controls the water, it could possibly control the body, come the term "lunatic".

2. Full moon can interfere with sleep. Studies show that the changes in the lunar cycle to a full moon have an effect to the subconscious.

3. Some studies published in the 70s suggested that there was an increase in crime rate every full moon.

4. Early studies suggest that animal behavior may also tend to be affected by the full moon.

5. People can become impulsive during full moon.

6. The earth is greatly affected by a full moon as much as its tides are.
