More education = longer life?

Maybe there's a whole new message for staying in school.

A new study, published in Health Affairs, looked at longevity compared with education and their findings were that people who had more than 12 years of education saw their life expectancy rise, while those with less than 12 years didn't get that increase in life span.

You can read more about the study in this article at the Washington Post: Life Expectancy Tied to Education
