Children with Higher IQ Have Higher Chances to Live Longer
A new study, published in The BMJ, reports that children with higher IQ are believed to have higher chances of longer life and lower risk of such diseases as heart disease, stroke, smoking-related cancers, respiratory disease, and dementia.
For the study, the researchers collected data from 33,526 and 32,229 women born in Scotland in 1936, who took validated childhood intelligence test at age of 11, and who could be followed to cause of death data up to December 2015.
Scientists say: “Importantly, it shows that childhood IQ is strongly associated with causes of death that are, to a great extent, dependent on already known risk factors. Tobacco smoking and its distribution along the socioeconomic spectrum could be of particular importance here.”
