The body of heliobiological evidence suggests that very weak variable magnetic fields due to solar- and geomagnetic-activities do have a biological effect. Geomagnetic disturbances can cause a non-specific reaction in the human body — a kind of general adaptation syndrome, which occurs due to any external stress factor. Also specific reactions can develop. One of the reasons discussed for the similarity between the biological and heliogeophysical rhythms is that geomagnetic variations have a direct influence on organisms, although exact magnetoreception mechanisms are not yet clear. The paper briefly reviews the current state of empirical and theoretical work on this fundamental multidisciplinary problem.
