People who study are healthier

GETTING an ‘ology’ could help you live longer.

According to a new study, people who go to university have lower blood pressure as they get older than those whose education finished when they left school early.

With high blood pressure doubling the risk of dying from a heart attack, the results suggest a good education could save your life.

Researchers at America’s Brown University found that highly educated men tended to be thinner and smoked and drank less than those without further education.

In the 30 year study of 4,000 people, well-educated women also smoked less and were thinner – but curiously drank MORE than those who did not go on to further education.

  1. Good thoughts. i study theology and have always believed eating and drinking spiritual ideas is far better healthier for me than eating and drinking too much food.
