Health Disorders Linked To Astrological Signs

People born under each zodiac sign is said to be vulnerable to a specific health disorder.// This was disclosed by Peter Austin and his colleagues from Institute for Clinical Evaluative Sciences in Toronto.

This interesting study reveals that Librans are more prone to pelvic fractures and Pisceans should be cautious about heart attacks. This study also suggests that women born under the sign of Virgo vomit more during their pregnancy.According to this study at least two disorders are associated with every sign.

The study, which used data from 10,000,000 Ontario residents in 2000, was conducted with tongue firmly in cheek. Replace astrological signs with another characteristic such as gender or age, and immediately your mind starts to form explanations for the observed associations,” says Austin. “Then we leap to conclusions, constructing reasons for why we saw the results we did. We did this study to prove a larger point – the more we look for patterns, the more likely we are to find them, particularly when we don’t begin with a particular question.”

Austin will discuss his results at the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Conference in San Francisco, which runs from Feb. 15 to 19, 2007. What he found was that even though each astrological sign had its own unique disorders, his initial results were not reproduced when they were explicitly tested in a second population.

“Scientists take pains to make sure their clinical studies are conducted accurately,” says Austin, “but sometimes erroneous conclusions will be obtained solely due to chance.” Statistical chance means that 5 per cent of the time, scientists will incorrectly conclude that an association exists, when in reality no such association exists in the population that the scientists are studying.

One way to reduce the chances of drawing a wrong conclusion is to try and reproduce unexpected results in further studies.

“There is a danger in basing scientific decisions on the results of one study, particularly if the results were unanticipated or the association was one that we did not initially decide to examine,” says Austin. “But when several studies all arrive at similar conclusions, we reduce the risk of arriving at an incorrect outcome.”
