London: Autumn babies born between the months of September and November are more likely to cross the 100th milestone, a new study has revealed.Gathering data from 1500 centenarians born between 1880 and 1895 within the United States, researchers at the University of Chicago discovered that the majority of these people were born in The Fall.The new research confirms that the month in which you were born and the environment and temperature into which you arrive will affect your behaviour, your genetics and your longevity.Previous studies into life spans and date-of-birth had also indicated that children born in autumn stand a better chance of living longer, but researchers felt that the economic factors such as wealth might have made the result uneven.Working on data from 1880 to 1895, Leonid Garilov and Natalia Gavrilova at the University of Chicago compared the birth dates and life spans of centenarian`s siblings and spouses.They supposed that siblings would have experienced similar early environment and genetic backgrounds as the century-makers and that their spouses would have shared similar experiences later in life.The pair`s data revealed that more centenarians were born in the autumn than in the spring or any other time of year.
