Smart people live longer, according to a new study published in the British Medical Magazine.
Scientists have long observed the link between high intelligence and longer life and believed that people who achieved high scores on intelligence tests are more likely to be educated and more earning, and these factors increase the likelihood of a deep old age.
However, this research has confirmed that people with high IQ have innate health.
During the research into the cause of death of a large number of respondents whose IQ was documented in their childhood, the researchers found that besides the amount of income and smoking, and intelligence is related to the causes of death.
A strong relationship has been discovered between our intelligence and respiratory and cardiovascular diseases as well as with strokes.
That connection exists between intelligence in childhood and death caused by injuries, cancer, diseases of the digestive tract and the money.
