Most of the time, you're told what your personality is like based off of astrology. However, Men's Health can tell you something about yourself that's based off of scientific research. Check out what your birth season means below:
1. FALL - Food Allergies
Believe it or not, babies that are born in fall are way more likely to develop food allergies. Why? Well, Men's Health claims that, "Fall babies experience a lack of vitamin D during a crucial developmental period. This can affect their immune system and leave them susceptible to certain allergens." Babies born in fall are also more likely to develop asthma.
2. Winter - Lefties
Most lefties are actually born during winter months. It sounds strange, but apparently, "You can likely credit the effect of testosterone on your developing fetus-brain. High levels of T in the womb can delay the maturation of your left brain hemisphere, making left-handedness more likely to develop later on. And longer periods of daylight—say, from May through July—spur higher secretion of this hormone."
3. Spring - Skin Problems
If you were born in spring, you should be extra cautious about going out in the sun. Always wear your sunscreen, because, "The researchers think these babies might be exposed to higher UV exposure during their first few months of life—a critical period that might increase later susceptibility to the skin cancer."
4. Summer - NEARSIGHTEDNESS
If you were born in the summer months, there's a higher chance that you'll need some fashionable glasses. "The researchers think it might have to do with seasonal differences in birth weight or other environmental features like temperature."
Does this accurately describe you, or are they way off?
