Magnettormide mõju inimesele – uurimuse vahekokkuvõte

Esmaspäeval, 2.aprillil avaldab selle ajaveebi autor Tarmo Koppel Tallinna Tehnikaülikoolis magnettormide uurimuse esialgsed järeldused. Uurimus, mis on nüüdseks kestnud üle seitsme kuu, on hõlmanud kokku kuut magnettormi. Inimeste kogemustest nendel päevadel on kokku laekunud üle 2000 ankeedi.

Vastustest võib järeldada, et umbes pooled kõikidest vastanutest kogevad magnettormi päevil ebaharilikke terviseilminguid, mida tavalisel päeval ei esine. Enim kogetud sümptomiteks on väsimus, uimasus ja unisus päevasel ajal. Samuti unehäired, keskendumisvõime raskused, seletamatu kehv meeleolu ja ärevus, kergesti ärritatavus. Peavalu all kannatas viiendik inimestest magnettormi päevil.

Uurimistulemusi kajastava artikli ettekanne ning retsensioonide esitamine toimub doktoriseminaril 2.aprillil kl 17.45.

Tarmo Koppel avaldab tänu kõigile, kes on oma kogemustest magnettormi päevil teada andnud. Sel moel teadusesse panustamine on tunnustamistväärt. Igaühe isiklik osalus võimaldab nii teadusel kui ka sellest sündivatel ühiskonna heaolusse suunatud rakendustel sammukese taas edasi astuda.

    Hello Tarmo, this is what I was trying to ask you but you got exhasperated about: How did you controlled the research (filters, more variables, specific target groups, cultural background, etc.)? I missed to notice the indication on where at all was the study performed, but I might have overlooked it. As far as I am concerned, the context was unclear.
    By diminishing the importance of individual constrains, biases and even externalities affecting groups you do not help a research as you must know already for you are dealing with science. Generalizing is not the purpose, or was it? If so, then I also failed to understand it from the reading. One way or another, being all homo sapiens is not the type of argument that would support your or anyone´s analysis in this particular program. The cultural specification is a fundamental concern of every researcher I have met so far. Maybe it also makes sense to you? MC.

    Hello Maria, Thank you for reviewing the article and sharing your thoughts.

    Indeed, in addition to asking symptoms few questions were asked about the overall health condiotion of the respondent and how sensitive he/she considers himself/herself to be to the environment and electromagnetic fields. However only the important findings were reported in the artile. But I m still conidering adding some of that other data also to the final version of the paper.

    Besides some personal data, no other questions were asked to segment the person as in depth analysis was not the goal of this research. This needed to be a quick 3-min questionnaire.

    The issues you pointed out, I agree, are worth studying in detail in the following studies.

    The study was conducted amongst Estonian population as mentioned in the article (pg2). There is no need of using cultural discriminators as in environmental health science they play little or no role in the development of adverse symptoms.

    Thank you for your input!

      Hello again! The symptoms are informative, and relevant only if one can identify them objectively. We can easily be influenced by peers, their comments and attitudes in so many ways. When someone says “I have an itch” it feels to others just the same, it is a common tacit empathy. I am personally prone to BELIEVE this magnetism affects people; but it is a matter of belief. When I read not only yours but different articles about the topic, I start doubting. A credible study must cover all flanks, and exclude all possible distractors. For instance, did people know what the study was about? This alone could be misleading. Why not to begin with effects? For example, when someone is proven to perform poorly, then look into the reasons and try establishing their connection with the reported incidence of EMFs. On one less relevant side I have to say that no matter how interesting the subject is, it follows from having solved all other possible disturbances affecting work and occupational safety. As weird as it might sound, I consider having a very low pay a worst health hazard affecting self esteem, relationships, productivity, causing depression, demotivation, stress, and anxiety, with all related symptomatology: headaches, tachycardia, lack of sleep, etc…
      I look forward to hearing about this further and much more in detail, when you are ready, in our future courses.

  3. So much about personal training is finding the trainer that you click with, one that
    understands you and understands what you need.
