Study: How You’re Most-Likely To Die Each Day Of The Week

We don’t like to think about the fact that we’ll all die someday, but the truth is each and every one of us will. Live Science crunched some numbers recently released from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) about all U.S. deaths caused by injury and disease between 1999 and 2014. They found the number of deaths on any given day is roughly equal– about 5.6 million. They also narrowed the top causes of death each day of the week, weekends are particularly risky, with car-crash deaths peak on Saturdays, while gun-related deaths peaked on Saturdays and Sundays. Additionally, death caused by contact with a venomous plants or animals was most-likely to happen on the weekend. As for the rest of the week, cardiac-related deaths spiked on Monday, while death caused by flu or pneumonia peaked on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Thursday appears to be the safest day, as Thursdays had the fewest deaths from heart attacks, diabetes, and firearms. (Women’s Health)
