Mortality from all causes, from coronary heart disease, and from stroke in the US was studied in relation to solar activity as measured by the geomagnetic index, Ap, on a daily basis for the years 1964-66 and on a monthly basis for the years 1964-71. The data did not support previous assertions by Soviet researchers of an association between solar activity and cardiovascular mortality.
