Did you know? Birth months could be linked to certain chronic illness{See month and illness list}


Your birth month may affect your long term health. According to new research, the month of your birth may determine what diseases are more likely to affect you.

Scientists from the University of Alicante mapped birth months to 27 chronic diseases, report The Telegraph, and found the month people were born may have influenced the development of some health conditions. They believe it could be due to changes in UV rays, vitamin D levels and viruses, and foetal development.

The team discovered male babies born in August almost had double the risk of asthma, compared to those born at the beginning of the year. Men born in September were three times more likely to suffer thyroid issues, compared to their counterparts born earlier on in the year. Women born in June were less likely to suffer from migraines and health problems associated with the menopause. The list is as follows:

January
Men: Constipation, stomach ulcer, lower back pain
Women: Migraine, menopause problems, heart attack

February
Men: Thyroid problems, heart conditions, osteoarthritis
Women: Osteoarthritis, thyroid problems, blood clot

March
Men: Cataracts, heart conditions, asthma
Women: Arthritis, rheumatism, constipation

April
Men: Asthma, osteoporosis, thyroid problems
Women: Osteoporosis, tumour, bronchitis

May
Men: Depression, asthma, diabetes
Women: Chronic allergies, osteoporosis, constipation

June
Men: Heart condition, cataracts, chronic bronchitis
Women: Incontinence, arthritis, rheumatism

July
Men: Arthritis, asthma, tumours
Women: Chronic neck pain, asthma, tumours

August
Men: Asthma, osteoporosis, thyroid problems
Women: Blood clots, arthritis, rheumatism

September
Men: Asthma, osteoporosis, thyroid problems
Women: Osteoporosis, thyroid problems, malignant tumours

October
Men: Thyroid problems, osteoporosis, migraine
Women: High cholesterol, osteoporosis, anaemia

November
Men: Chronic skin issues, heart conditions, thyroid problems
Women: Constipation, heart attack, varicose veins

December
Men: Cataracts, depression, heart condition
Women: Chronic bronchitis, asthma, blood clots
And it’s good news for September babies who were found to have the lowest risk of being diagnosed with chronic disease.
