Breaking your first bone is like a weird rite of passage in life. But a new poll found most Americans never have.
45% of us have broken a bone before, 55% haven’t. So just over half of us still have skeletons in pristine condition.
Which bone are you the most LIKELY to break? The poll also looked at that. And the answer is . . . a tie between breaking your arm, or breaking a finger.
12% of Americans have broken their arm . . . 12% have broken a finger . . . 10% have broken a toe . . . and 8% have snapped an ankle.
The rest of the Top 10 are a foot . . . a hand . . . a leg . . . a wrist . . . a rib . . . and 5% have broken their collarbone. Only 4% of us have broken our nose.
The most common cause of breaks is tripping or falling down. 18% of them happen like that. Sports injuries rank high too.
The poll also found 59% of us have had surgery before . . . 53% have had stitches . . . and 17% have dislocated a joint, like a shoulder.
