Higher education prolongs life

Unlearned in universities can boast a longer life expectancy than those who do not have a bachelor’s or master’s degree

The scientists came to a curious conclusion: it turns out that people who have graduated from higher educational institutions can boast a longer life expectancy than those who for some reason do not have a bachelor’s or master’s degree. 

The experts studied the archive data, collecting information on life expectancy, health status and level of education received by people who were born in 1925, 1935, 1945 and 1986. Comparing all the data, the experts came to the conclusion that the degree of education that a person was able to receive has a direct impact on the duration of his life. So, the higher the degree, the more a person has a chance to live to a great age. 

Scientists have built mathematical models with which they were able to carry out some calculations and draw stunning conclusions. For example, just having received a full school education, 145,243 people who were born in the middle of the 20th century and died in 2010 could have saved their lives. Getting a minimum higher education would help prevent 110,068 deaths. 

According to scientists, those people who have received at least a bachelor's degree, have more developed cognitive skills. In addition, they live in a completely different social environment, most often have better paying jobs, live in good conditions and adhere to a good diet - all of these factors significantly increase the chances of prolonging life and avoiding the mass of dangerous diseases.скачать dle 12.1
