That’s according to this article. A study which looked at 400 men and women found that people with fewer qualifications are prone to ageing more quickly. DNA evidence found that cellular ageing is more advanced in adults with no qualifications than with those who have a university degree. Experts believe this is due to the fact that education may simply help people to lead more healthy lives such as smoking less, taking more exercise and having more access to better quality healthcare. It is also thought that well qualified people may be under less long term stress or be better able to deal with stress.
