MONDAY, May 14 (HealthDay News) — It’s graduation season, and new research offers yet another reason to congratulate someone who has completed at least nine years of education: They’re likely to live longer.

While the finding suggests an association between level of education and longevity, it does not establish a cause-and-effect link.
