CDC: Educated people live longer

Here’s another reason to stay in school – it will help you live longer.

The CDC reports people with at least a bachelor’s degree live about nine years longer than those who don’t graduate high school.

Doctors say it’s because highly educated people tend to have healthier lifestyles.

They also apparently have more access to healthcare.
