Lack of the higher education – a minus of 5 years of life
People with the higher education on the average live for 5 years more long, than those who did not manage to leave school
People with the higher education on the average live for 5 years more long, than those who did not manage to leave a gymnasium or high school. To such conclusion the Swedish scientists who investigated a state of health of representatives of various social groups came.
Despite statements that health of Swedes year from a year improves, at representatives of different public layers it seriously differs, and differences become more and more appreciable, researchers speak.
«People with the higher education have the best preconditions to make a right choice. Higher income allows to buy dietary products and to make tours for rest, more rational relation to use of possibilities of health system» is noted also, – one of authors of research Susanna Tayvanen speaks. According to her, the considerable part of decisions which daily should be accepted to people concerning food, smoking, alcohol, sports activities, leans on the society organization, its structure. And the problem of an inequality is connected not only with availability of more effective drugs or a healthy lifestyle, but also more with providing a general education and employment.
Susanna Tayvanen considers that the most important – to give to the child good signal to start in life. «Conditions, in which the person carries out the childhood, are reflected on its health at mature age, and also in old age», – it is sure.
