Why Do Educated People Live Longer?

Because education slows biological aging, according to an analysis in the August 2012 issue of Demography ("The Significance of Education for Mortality Compression in the United States").

The study examined mortality rates in the United States by age and education, finding that "highly educated persons are able to use their considerable resources to maximize their life chances under current conditions and, ultimately, delay the biological aging process."
