You’re more likely to die on your birthday than any other day

A study involving a staggering 2.4 million people has revealed that dying on your birthday is possibly more common than we might assume. Researchers in Switzerland determined that the effect may be due to something called the anniversary reaction hypothesis, and even cite stress surrounding the big day as a reason people are prone to kick it on their birthdays.

Dr. Vladeta Ajdacic-Gross led the Swiss study, which was published in the medical journal Annals of Epidemiology. Ajdacic-Gross said that, quite morbidly, researchers “concluded that birthdays end lethally more frequently than might be expected” during the gathering of data.
