Chances are, you’ve got at least one cut, ache, sprain or other minor ailment bothering you. If not, you probably will with the next few days.
That’s according to a recent year-long survey of 2,000 Britons. In a single year, the average British citizen cuts herself twice while shaving, gets one electric shock, and three papercuts. He or she will lose her voice at least once, and accidentally bite her or his own tongue three times. What about garden-variety headaches, cramps, blisters, trips and falls and other injuries? Adds up to about 124 such incidents annually.
In case you’re counting, that’s 9,672 ailments over the course of a 78-year lifespan.
The study was conducted by the health non-profit Beneden Healthcare Society[related_posts limit=”5″]
