Interesting Fact # 1052 - Suicide

According to a survey, suicide rates go up in the spring.

(They also go up during an economic downturn, and there are a couple of other known risk factors - being a man, a doctor and a smoker. So as it's spring, and being that we're in a recession, if you're a male, smoking doctor, please try to think positive. The survey was conducted by Keith Hawton of Oxford University and Kees van Heeringen of University Hospital, Gent, and published in the British medical journal The Lancet.)
