Wisconsin, Education and health are closely related known. But it was not just a degree or years of education that affect, because someone in the class rankings also influence the quality of one’s health.
Numerous studies have found that not only people who have higher education who can enjoy good health. Because in a recent report there are interesting facts that people with high rankings in the class have a good health quality.
These findings come from the Wisconsin Longitudinal Study that followed more than 10,000 Wisconsin high school graduates in 1957. Known students who have ranked top in the school are healthier in the decades ahead.
When these participants in their 60s in the quarter known top ranking students have better health and few who reported chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart or respiratory disease.
“What we see in this research is the relationship between health and academic achievement a person, the better the performance and ranking in the class then he had better health,” said study author Dr. Pamela Herd, a professor of sociology at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Friday (12/17/2010).
The results of this study have been published online in The Journal of Health and Social Behavior.
Why are ratings or values so important?
“They know how to learn to be more effective, and this affects other things such as how to improve your health both medically and behavior,” says Dr. Herd.
For example, do not really like smoking, fewer obese and more physically active. And if he develops diabetes, tend to be better at managing it.
The relationship between a high ranking in the class and good health is because of the psychological characteristics of the equation.
