You can probably expect cake and presents on your birthday, but you also have a good chance of kicking the bucket. After analyzing 2.4 million deaths over four decades, Swiss researchers found that you're nearly 14 percent more likely to die on your birthday than any other day of the year.

Why? "Men have an increased risk of falling down or committing suicide on their birthday, presumably due to alcohol consumption," says study author Vladeta Ajdacic-Gross, Ph.D., a research associate at the University of Zurich.

The Month of July

If you're having elective surgery, don't go under the knife in July. New medical residents--recent med school grads--start work on July 1, hence the 4 percent spike in deaths throughout the month, according to a Harvard study. Inexperienced doctors are also more likely to administer the wrong medication, says a University of California, San Diego study. Of 62.3 million hospital deaths, there are 10 percent more deaths attributed to a medication error in July. And if you have to visit the hospital, schedule a 9 a.m. surgery: Duke University researchers found that operations at that time of day are the least likely to develop complications.

Any Holiday

Which day has the most drunk driving deaths each year, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's Eve, the Fourth of July, or Memorial Day? The answer: All of the above. The most deadly night of the year for drunk driving accidents varies from year to year, but is almost always one of those holidays, according to statistics from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported in the Wall Street Journal. There are more people on the roads and more booze, explains Jan Withers, president of Mothers Against Drunk Driving. End the party a little early: 66 percent of fatal crashes occur between midnight and 3 a.m., according to the NHTSA--more than any other time of day
