In the published article, one of the latest issues of the scientific journal International Journal of Epidemiology scientists suggest a parallel between the mental abilities of people and their life expectancy. The researcher Rosalind Arden of the London School of Economics and Political Science, and her co-researchers believe that smart people live longer than those who are hard to describe the word "brainy". If you're thinking that smart people live longer because they make more informed choices about their health and lifestyle, or earn more money, afford expensive treatment, you are absolutely right. But these factors have not been considered by scientists in this matter. Between life expectancy and mental abilities a lot more bonds than it might seem at first glance. And according to Rosalind Arden and her colleagues, the most important factor, which sooner or later is applied, it is genetics. In the published article, scientists reported that the genes that make people smarter, also affect their life expectancy, increasing the resources of the body. This conclusion came after researchers analyzed and compared these indicators IQ and longevity between identical and fraternal twins from America, Sweden and Denmark. It turned out that the most intelligent twin typically had a longer life than his less brainy brother or sister. The discrepancy was even more obvious in the case of fraternal twins, which again pointed to the fact that genetics affects both life expectancy and the mental characteristics. "We found that a small link between intelligence and life expectancy is entirely enclosed in genetics" - shared Rosalind Arden, in an interview to Live Science. Immediately experts hasten to reassure. Even if there are so-called universal genes make some people smarter than others and at the same time increase their life expectancy, it does not mean that those whose mental abilities are not as impressive, doomed to die young. For a long and happy life, advise scientists who need to eat right, maintain a healthy lifestyle and not think too much about IQ-tests.
