Scientists have found a strange link between the month of birth and some facts and events in people's lives.
It has been discovered that those of us born between May and August are more susceptible to cancer than those born in other months.
This connection was first discovered back in the 50s of the 20th century by Austrian doctor Shtur. What caught his attention was that the greater majority of patients suffering from cancer were born in specific months of the year.
After analyzing 3000 cases, he made the aforementioned conclusion.
Gabriella Reiter and James Vaupel, scientists of the Max Planck Institute for Demographic Research reached another conclusion. It was that those persons, born during the fall, lived longer.
The experts analyzed gathered data of over 1 million people. All of them had died between the years 1968 - 1998 in Austria, Denmark, Australia and the United States and left our world at ages over 50.
Our month of birth affects our height as well. Those born during the spring are taller than those born in other seasons.
If you are left-handed, this is an almost sure sign that you were born between September and February.
The happiest people are born during the summer. Their attitude toward life is always positive, they have high self-confidence and feelings of pessimism and melancholy are unknown to them.
To prove this, Richard Wiseman from the University of Hertfordshire interviewed 40 000 people.
