Quiz: Find How You’re Most Likely To Die Based On When You Were Born

rexfeatures_821851l.jpg

There are quite a few claims levelled towards the month that you're born in - things like the person you'll end up marrying, whether you've got a sweet tooth and even, if you're a fan of Victorian speculation, whether you'll commit a crime.

Rarely however are these claims linked to solid scientific research like this one. A new study put together by a team of data scientists from Columbia University Medical Center in the US has poured over more than 1.7 million medical records and have discovered some very compelling evidence to predict which disease you're most at risk of developing.

Obviously the scientists have caveated the results with acknowledgement that birth month is only one factor grouped together with lots of other things such as diet, exercise and occupation but nonetheless, the findings are pretty interesting. They're also great for anybody that happens to be born in May, which is apparently the healthiest month to be born in the Northern Hemisphere. 

Take the test below to find out what could finish you off.
