Study says parents who send kids to college live longer

By Rebecca Lewis. CREATED Aug 1, 2014

New research is suggesting that if you want your parents to live longer, you should go to college.

The study shows that parents whose kids graduate from college live an average of two years longer than those with children who don't.

Researchers found the parents of better-educated children were less likely to smoke and more likely to say they quit smoking, than parents of less-educated offspring.

Similarly, parents with better-educated kids exercised more than other parents.
