The Average Person Gets Sick or Injured Almost 10,000 Times in Their Lifetime
A survey by a British healthcare company called Benenden Healthcare Society found that the average person gets injured or ill nearly 10,000 times in their life. That breaks down to:
2,808 bumps and bruises: That works out to 36 a year, or three a month.
858 headaches: That's a little less than one a month. (That seems low.)
780 backaches: That works out to 10 a year.
468 cases of upset stomach: One every two months.
You'll also get 234 bug bites . . . the same number of paper cuts . . . 156 burns . . . 156 earaches . . . 78 bloody noses . . . 78 electric shocks . . . three trips to the hospital . . . two surgeries . . . and one broken bone.
