What your birth season says about your health

Each season comes with health quirks

GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - When it comes to babies, there is no best or worst month for a child to be born -- but each season does come with its own quirks.

Babies born spring have a lower risk of ADHD and are more optimistic.

They also have higher levels of dopamine and serotonin which help to ward of depression. However, the bad news is, spring babies have an increased risk of heart disease. And a higher risk of developing Multiple Sclerosis later in life.

These characteristics of spring babies are based on a study on birth month and disease risk in the Journal of the American Medical Informatics Association.

Summer babies are more likely to be thrill-seekers.

Highest rates of asthma occur in July, August, September and October. That has to do with an increase in dust-mite breeding during those warmer months which affects a babies developing immune system.

People born in May have the lowest disease risk. Those born in October have the highest.

November babies have the highest risk of ADHD.
