Is Food Your Best Friend or Enemy

with Marc David

It’s official. It’s here. Summer has arrived. Here are some random fun facts about summer.

  • In the summer heat, the iron in France’s Eiffel Tower expands, making the tower grow more than 6 inches.
  • Marc Antony named the month of July, in honor of Julius Caesar.
  • Studies show that men are more likely to cheat during the summer months.
  • Leprosy is more readily contracted during the summer. Each year about 150 Americans contract leprosy, the same skin-disease mentioned in the Bible. In the United States, the source of leprosy is usually armadillos. The disease is transmitted when people, particularly in the southern U.S., hunt, kill, and eat infected armadillo.
  • The most dangerous time to go to the hospital is during the summer, especially July. The most experienced medical residents graduate and leave hospitals in July, just as new physicians (or last year’s medical students) arrive. Death rates increase between 8%–24% in July.

These fun facts were taken directly from 50 Fun Facts about Summer.
