Did you know that your education level has an impact on your health? This is Judy Gaman and this is your Stay Young Medical Minute. Research has shown that your heart disease risk goes down by a third for every 3.6 years spent in education. Why? A new study from Imperial College London, University of Bristol, University of Cambridge and University of Oxford may provide some answers. They found that people with higher education levels had a lower BMI, lower blood pressure, and were less likely to become smokers than participants with lower education. They were also more likely to go to the doctor when sick. Talk to your doctor if you have questions about your health.
