An article was posted on Family Health website on June 21 detailing how a person's birth month could have a bearing on his overall health. Scientists at the University of Alicante conducted a study and reported that 27 chronic diseases were linked to people born in certain months. Lead professor of the study, Jose Antonio Quesada, wants it to be known that the season a baby is born also has a lot to do with a person's overall health as an adult.

The report

The study was published in the journal "Medicine Clinica" based on almost 30,000 people. However, the study is not conclusive, and further research needs to be done.

Also, the results are not correct with every person born in those months; however, the results were only about the subjects studied.


Men born in January are likely to suffer from constipation, stomach ulcer, and lower back pain. Women born in January are prone to migraine headaches, menopause problems, and heart attacks.


Both men and women born in February might have thyroid problems and osteoarthritis. Men might also have problems with their heart while women might suffer from blood clots.


Men born in March should be careful when it comes to cataracts, heart conditions and asthma. Certain women will have a problem with arthritis, rheumatism, and constipation.


April showers might bring May flowers, but the month also brings asthma, osteoporosis, and thyroid problems in males born in April.

For women, they are likely to have osteoporosis, tumors, and bronchitis.


In not all cases, but some men born in May will suffer from depression, asthma and have diabetes. Women will suffer from chronic allergies, osteoporosis, and constipation.


Heart condition, cataracts, and chronic bronchitis are common in men who were born in June.

Women might suffer from incontinence, arthritis, and rheumatism. Women born in June are less likely to suffer from migraines and health problems associated with menopause.


July is the month when both men and women are likely to suffer from asthma and tumors. Men might also be affected by arthritis while women might have chronic neck pain.


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. Males born in August might also have osteoporosis and thyroid problems. Women who were born in August have more blood clots, arthritis, and rheumatism than women who were born in other months.


September babies were found to have the lowest risk of being diagnosed with chronic diseases. Men will suffer from osteoporosis and issues with thyroids. Like men, women will also have osteoporosis and thyroid problems. They will also have malignant tumors.


Men born in this month might suffer from thyroids, osteoporosis, and migraine headaches while women will suffer from high cholesterol, osteoporosis, and anemia.


A November baby might suffer from chronic skin issues, heart conditions, and thyroid problems later in life. Constipation, heart attack, varicose veins are common with women who were born in November.


Cataracts, depression, heart condition, are common in men born in this winter month. Women might have a high risk of chronic bronchitis, asthma, and blood clots.
