Get Educated and Reduce Your Risk of Stroke

Reuters is reporting that a recent Swedish study has found that the risk of stroke among women increases the less educated you are. The reason is not simply that education magically improves your health, but that by being educated, you make healthier decisions based on learned knowledge. This can mostly be attributed to the significant differences in health behaviors in well educated versus non-educated women such as smoking and alcohol consumption.

The risk of stroke was significantly related to years of education completed and the hazard ratio was 2-times higher for the least educated compared to the most educated women.

So maybe it's time to sign up for that 2nd (or 3rd) language class that you have always wanted to try.
