Dearest Scientists of Sharing Abundance .

As a sheepy I of course like to live. "Living" is one of my most favourite past times ! I luff it...ewe luff it...we all luff to live ! yep living is simply sooper !...long live living !

But do we luff going to school ?.........Naaaaaa !!!...we all hate it...even those who say that they luff it actually hate it too !! ....................Actually..I luffed it !!...DOH !!....

Anyway, one good reason to enjoy your education is because according to research it has been proven that one extra year of education appears to cut the risk of dying aged 40-70 significantly........


I would like to know why ?...When I read the above it was just reported so....................No explanation was given....do ewe know why one extra year of education appears to cut the risk of dying aged 40-70 significantly ?

Help me know because coming here to this site is free education !!...and thus I will live forever with your fantastic resources which ewe give so frelely !

So...
If one wastes 16+ years sitting in classrooms.
Does one get back 16+ years of extra life?

I would think that education would be correlated with things like MONEY which may be correlated with longevity as well as better health care.

A lack of education may also be correlated with things like smoking, and alcohol abuse which would tend to shorten one's life expectancy. 

While there are benefits of physical labor, there are also health risks from hard physical work that may not be experienced by "desk jockeys".

False optimism, and a lack of reality, increasers longevity, in bad times. Your mind is probably going to be like a hay stack, when figuring things out from the foundation, or step one, but you will live long. Evil people just think like 3,5,9,14. Good people think like 1,2,3.

That is why really evil people usually live a very long life when things are terrible. In good times good people live longer and better lives. In bad times evil people live longer. When things are bad the slave labor pays off, for the evil business owner, it kept higher paid people working. When things are good, he looks bad, and then dies.

If there is an association itís not necessary that way around ...

Coming from an impoverished family could cause someone to leave school as early as possible to go to work and contribute to the household income.

The same impoverishment could cause a degree of malnutrition in the formative years which can have life-long effects that can increase the odds of an early death, (e.g. protein deficient diet ... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Protein-calorie_malnutrition )

In that scenario leaving school earlier hasnít caused an early death, itís just the two have a common origin (in poverty).

In my experience, some lessons and lectures were so intolerably boring that they made time appear to stand still; in this respect, I supposed they made you feel like you were going to live in that lesson for ever...
