The San Francisco Chronicle today reported on a study analyzing the connection between education levels and health.  Here’s a quote:

“The study, commissioned by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, focused on gaps in education and how that affects a person’s health condition. The report supports other research that shows factors such as income and education have as much or even more impact on a person’s health than access to medical services.”

The Foundation has an online calculator where you can actually get the specific data for any county in the United States.

It’s interesting, but I sometimes wonder about the amount of money spent on studies that come-up with conclusions that most of us had already figured out.
