Longer Life with More Education?
Here's long and in-depth article from the NY Times I wanted to pass along. It's called A Surprising Secret to Long Life; Stay in School. The research in this article shows that the more education a person has, the longer they live. It looked at data world-wide and even looked at country like England that have universal health-care (on the idea that with education comes more money and thus, more health care) but that wasn't borne out. Naturally, like all research, there could be other factors but it's interesting reading.
