What Your Birthday Says About Your Health

August 06, 2015 1 min read

Now your horoscope can tell you more than just your future or your personality traits! It started with a study, which was done at Columbia University. The study compared birthdays to medical records of roughly 1.7 million patients between 1985-2013 at New York-Presbyterian Hospital. It was published in the Journal of American Medical Informatics Association After crunching some numbers and looking at the data, they found some interesting parallels between certain diseases and birth months. For example, if you were born between January and March you could have a lower risk of neurological, respiratory and reproductive conditions. Yet, you can have a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. It all depends on when you mother was pregnant with you, and what kind of environment she lived in - according to Mary Regina, a co-author of the study! Cosmo has created a lovely illustration that shows what your birth month could mean for your health. But remember, just as horoscopes aren't always right, there will be some mistakes. Don't think that just because you're a May baby means you don't need to take care of your body and you are getting away scott free!  Equally, if you are November born that there is no point trying because your doomed to get some disease! Make sure you take care and love your body no matter what! You never know what the future has in store for you! What's your take on all of this? We want to hear from you!
