According to scientists, the flatness we feel at the passing of another year is the least of our problems. It emerges that we are 14 per cent more likely to die on our birthday, according to new research based on a study of more than two million people.
The authors of the study blame what they have called anniversary reaction hypothesis, or birthday blues, with stress playing a significant part. Causes of birthday deaths included heart attacks, stroke, cancer, falls and suicide.
"We concluded that birthdays end lethally more frequently than might be expected,'' says Dr. Vladeta Ajdacic-Gross, who led the Swiss study, published in Annals of Epidemiology.
The researchers analysed 2.4 million deaths over a 40-year period. Results show there were 13.8 per cent more deaths on birthdays than might be expected compared with any other day of the year. The risk increased with age, with the figure rising to 18 per cent among the over-60s. Results for individual diseases show that there was an 18.6 per cent increased risk of dying from cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks, and a higher risk of up to 21.5 per cent for strokes. There was also a 10.8 per cent rise in deaths among people with cancer.

TRIVIA 0000036: Did you know that sperm whales can also suffer from "the bends" on deep dives — just like humans?
Bends is a medical problem that occurs when a scuba diver dives under water, but at very deep levels. When the diver is sixty feet deep inside the ocean, the partial pressure of nitrogen, starts developing. Gradually when he swims down at hundred feet, this partial pressure increases to a great level. Not only nitrogen there many other gases that are under pressure and the scuba diver breathes them. When these gases are respired inside our body, they start mixing up with the blood of the diver, which ultimately results in blindness, state of unconsciousness and many other problems.
