The speck of metal in our noses theory is still hotly debated. Many scientists say they can't duplicate the results of the first study, but they've since discovered a magnetoreceptive protein called crytpochrome 2 in the human eye.

We don't know yet why or how it works, but like many issues in biology, this one may well operate at the quantum level. They don't yet understand how or why it works in animals; small wonder if they don't understand how it works in us. Deviations in electromagnetism and changes in gravity also affect plant growth (called gravitropism. What is clear, though, is that some people are sensitive to very low frequency electromagnetism. I personally have experienced it twice...I say that because I don't know what else could have caused it. The first time was at Chichen Itza in Mexico, although whether that was from electromagnetism or the adrenaline rush of climbing it, I can't really say for sure. The second time was right before the earthquake in Quebec a couple of years ago.

Magnetoreception or magnetosensitivity is found all throughout the domains of life, from bacteria to plants to fish to birds. I have a hard time believing we didn't retain something of that.
