The Days You Are Most Likely To Die

April 27, 2015 2 min read

Most of us expect cake and presents on our birthday but guess what else? You also have a pretty good chance of biting the dust. Swiss researchers analysed 2.4 million deaths over four decades and discovered that you are 14 percent more likely to die on your birthday than any other day of the year. It appears alcohol is the culprit. Increased alcohol consumption on your birthday can up your risk of  a fall or feelings of depression, possibly increasing a suicide risk. Your birthday is not the only day where your life may be in danger. Check out the list and know how to protect yourself. The month of July New medical residents start work on July 1st and a Harvard University study has shown a 4 percent hike in deaths during the entire month. So, if you have elective surgery, it is best to pick a different month. It only gets better: inexperienced doctors are also more likely to administer the wrong medication, says a University of California, San Diego study. Of 62.3 million hospital deaths, there are 10 percent more deaths attributed to a medication error in July. If you can't avoid surgery in July, Duke University researchers suggest scheduling it for 9am. It appears that surgeries that time of day are least likely to develop complications. Spring forward According to Michigan State University researchers, the incidents of workplace injuries increase by 5.7 percent after daylight savings time. A study in the New England Journal of Medicine says that the time change causes 5.1 percent more heart attacks the week after due to inflammation caused by sleep loss. On the day before you turn the clocks, take 1,000 milligrams of Vitamin C.  Researchers at the University of California found the vitamin reduces levels of C-reactive protein, a marker of inflammation. Any holiday Pop quiz: which holiday sees the most drunk driving deaths? Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Eve, the Fourth of July, or Memorial Day? The answer is all of them. The night with the highest totals shifts from year to year but it is always one of them according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). These holidays see more traffic on the roads and the booze flowing freely. End the night early. NHTSA says that 66 percent of fatal crashes occur between midnight and 3 a.m which is more than any other time of day. What would you do to keep yourself safe?
