Today we are going to talk about a topic that holds a lot of beliefs for centuries. It is the lunar eclipse and its effect on the human body. There have been a number of myths and explanations in connection with lunar eclipse but are they all scientifically credible?

These are stories and beliefs that still surface today and some people blindly follow them. Let’s be honest here and let you know that there is no proven scientific explanation to back these. However, NASA says that lunar eclipse might have some effect on the human psyche, although it does not support the belief that lunar eclipse can have any physical effect on people.
