ABSTRACT
In recent years some interrelationships between time of birth and longevity were published. Concomitant publications appeared demonstrating links between Space Weather and the timing of medical events; in part of both these studies it was shown that Space Weather indices are stronger connected with the time of conception as with the birth time. The aim of these study was to consider birth and conception month of patients suffering from a number of “big killer” pathologies, affecting human longevity and comparing with published data on centenarians—100 – 112 years old persons in the USA. Patients and Methods: We included monthly births distribution of our four papers including patients with Acute Myocardial Infarction undergoing Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI)—n-3765, and admitted in another tertiary medical facility for AMI—n-22,047, and, also patients suffering Rapid—n-1239 and Sudden Cardiac Death—n-327 and, also, patients with oncologic malignancies—n-44587. At all in this group 71,965 patients were included. Their birth and conception months were compared with analogical data of 1574 people of 100 – 112 years old using data of L.A. and N.S. Gavrilov for USA centenarians. Results: The birth months of the cardiovascular and oncology patients were maximal in January, March and April (above 10% at each of these months); their conception was maximal in April, June and July. The monthly distribution of conception and birth of the studied population is presented in Tables 1-3. The maximal birth months of the centenarians were November, September, and October; the maximal conception months were December, January, and February. Conclusion: People suffering Myocardial Infarction, Sudden Cardiac Death and Oncologic Malignancies are in higher numbers born in the first four months of the year and conception in April, June and July. The maximal birth months of the very old people were November, September and October and conception were December, January and February.

 Background-Introduction
In recent decades a number of studies were published demonstrating links among timing of medical events, human longevity and such parameters like month of birth, Space Weather activity indices (Solar, Geomagnetic, Cosmic Ray (Neutron), Space Proton Flux Activity) [1] -[3] .

In some studies related to Space Weather effects it was shown that not only time (day, month) of birth physical conditions is related to some anatomic-physiologic properties of the individual longevity, but also physical conditions at time of conception are strong correlated with some congenital abnormalities like Congenital Heart Disease, Down Syndrome, etc. [4] [5] . The aim of this study was to: 1) synthesize data related to birth month of patients with such “big killer” diagnoses like Acute Myocardial Infarction (AMI) [6] [7] , Rapid and Sudden Cardiac Death (RCD, SCD) [8] , and Oncologic Malignancies [9] , including 71,965 deaths, and their presumed conception month for each group of pathology and summarized both for all groups of patients, studied in the mentioned studies; 2) compare with analogic data of the literature for a group of centenarians (100 – 112 years old) in the USA and; 3) explore the existing differences [10] .

Conclusions
People suffering Myocardial Infarction, Sudden Cardiac Death and Oncologic Malignancies are in higher numbers born in the first four months of the year and conception in April, June and July. The maximal birth months of the very old people were November, September and October (according to frequency in Gavrilov’s study) and presumed conception was in December, January, and February.

Different environmental physical activities in different parts of year can affect many systems of the embryo that may be involved in future predisposition to specific human pathologies.
