Produktioner i arabiske lande falder med 78% under ramadanen. Årsagerne er: at folk arbejder mindre, de er mindre klare i sindet og har mange sygemeldinger.

Derudover stiger sygdommer forbundet med kolesterol og sukkersyge med 27,65 % grundet overspisning (efter solned, formentligt).

Antallet af “æresforbrydelser” stiger med 1,5 % og tyverier med 3,5 % - formentligt grundet rygeres manglende mulighed for at stille deres nikotintrang.
