May children be happier?
Professor Richard Wiseman decided to study the relationship between the month of birth and the degree of happiness felt. He managed to determine that the children who are born in May and at the beginning of summer are statistically more pogodAD than those born at the end of autumn and winter.
The experiment was carried out in Edinburgh International Science Festival with 40,000 people. It turned out that the most happy month for childbirth is May, and the least "optimistic" October. Professor Wiseman is of the opinion that the reason may be greater optimism of parents, a more cheerful attitude to the hardships of the first weeks with a small child who fall in the early warm months of the year than in the winter months.
People born in the warm months usually have more optimistic approach to life, they consider themselves happier, which translates into increased chance of achieving success in various areas of life.
In England, it was believed for a long time that May children were sick and weak. This was justified as follows: the pregnancy in which the child was developing lasted throughout the winter, the worst period of the year. However, its solution took place in the pre-harvest, considered as equally difficult for agrarian societies. During this period, supplies were running low and there was not enough food for a young mother to eat healthy food and feed her child.
Of course, this problem generally does not exist today ... That is why this superstition is losing importance.
Greater risk of developing multiple sclerosis
Recent studies (Queen Mary and University of Oxford) indicate that children born in May may be more likely to have multiple sclerosis than babies who are born in other months. All because of low amount of vitamin D (children born in May had an average of 20% less vitamin D than those born in November) and elevated auto-reactive T cells. Previous studies have shown a strong relationship between vitamin D and MS risk.
Other research results suggest that children born in May are more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease, schizophrenia and asthma.
