Get an education, live longer

AdelaideNow… Get an education, live longer : “a study by the Harvard School of Medicine has shown that people with a better education tend to live longer.”

Yes, we keep getting information like this and we need to listen. The last report I read on educated people living longer attributed it to a capacity to think their way out of a problem and to come up with a variety of options for dealing with illnesses, conditions etc. It is creative thinking which is important to survival and then a range of practical strategies for dealing with things. It’s about research, social skills and interpreting information to suit individual needs. Let’s get educated!
