When will you die?

Based on numbers from Norway (2009-2013) researchers have found that different works will give different life span. Most important are education level; the more education the more years you will live. Just to have it written, the less years in school the fewer years you will live.  This numbers are stable and consistent. It is a tendency the recent years that the persons with low education die before and the person with higher education die later. For example men with only elementary school live 6 years shorter than men with a university Carrere. Among women we find the difference to be 4.5 years.

Nobody knows WHY these differences in predicted life exist. It exist many theories. The four most dominating theories are the more you use your brain the longer you live and the better health in your upbringing the longer you live. The third theory is related to the working conditions in jobs that requires low education; working hours, physical work and other risk factors.  The last theory we need to consider is work related benefits like social status and income, and collaterals from this like a healthy lifestyle and better food. It is also likely that a high education level constitutes the person to understand better the benefits of a good life and health.

What to think after reading this? First find out if your forefathers lived long. That might give you some extra genetic credits that this table informs you about. If “All” before you lived until 100 years of age you probably live to 100 no matter your work and educational level. Well, if all died around 60 years of age you might be in trouble before. It looks like a good job with freedom and an education that provide insight and a healthy lifestyle give you some extra earth time. If your job creates little freedom of choice and you are forced to accept some unhealthy solutions you are selling out some of your time.
