Better grades in high school = better health later in life

Posted:

MADISON, WISCONSIN (KWWL) -- Another predictor of good health, your grades in high school!

Researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison followed more than 10,000 high school seniors for 53 years after graduation.

They found the higher a person's class rank was, the lower the probability that person had a decline in health as they neared retirement age.

Researchers say they're still working to figure out why academic performance affects health outcomes.
