Education is the best predictor of longevity

I just heard on NPR that for every year spent in school, life expectancy goes up 18 months. So my B.A. was worth 6 years of life (for a net gain of 2). My graduate studies have so far gained me a little over 10 years (for a net gain of 3).

Thank you, Bob Jones University, for 5 years of life.
