They found that women born in November lived some 7.3 months longer than those born in May, while men lived 11.7 months longer, so those who were born between Septembers to early December have a higher likelihood of making it to the century mark, while those born in spring months have decreased chances of making it to one hundred.

Of course we cannot ignore other influences such as sun intensity, nutrition during pregnancy, air pollution, and levels of physical activity or infectious diseases at different times of the year.
Other smaller studies have shown that factors such as adult arterial blood pressure and other cardiovascular issues were related to the birth month of patients, but there is no concrete information to prove this yet, Greifswald researchers wanted to find out if this directly affected mortality too.
