A long research study has finally come to a stop and found some very peculiar results when it came to the link between birthdays and death. As shocking as it is, everyone is more likely to die on their birthday due to increased risk of heart attacks, strokes, suicides, falls, and other unfortunate accidents.
The study took place over a 40 year time frame and involved over 2 million people. The study showed that anyone over the age of 60-years-old is more likely, by 14 percent, to die on his/her birthday. The total heart attack rate rose 18.6 percent and men fell victim to this far more than women. However, strokes went up by 21.5 percent and women were the more frequent victims in this case.
“Birthdays end lethally more frequently than might be expected.” stated Dr Vladeta Ajdacic-Gross from the University of Zurich. He also noted that as the individual increases in age, the overall risk does as well.
