Why You Need to Get Smart

Besides being elected President, what's the REAL "Fountain of Youth"--the secret to a long life? Get educated! Researchers have concluded that this is why death rates for less educated middle aged adults are MUCH higher than for their more educated peers. While the causes of death have changed, rates have not.

Heath expert Richard Miech says, “One hundred years ago, the top causes of death were tuberculosis, diarrhea, and pneumonia. They’ve been replaced by heart disease, cancer, and stroke. But, one thing that hasn’t changed is that people with lower levels of education continue to be the ones dying at greater rates.”

This isn't a new discovery: For decades, data has shown that middle aged adults with low education levels (high school or less) are twice as likely to die as those with higher education levels. Miech says, “Money, power, prestige, knowledge, and beneficial social connections allow people of higher education status to take better advantage of health developments."
