Live Fast, And You May Die Young

Live fast, die young is not just a cliche.  Analysis of two years worth of obituaries from the New York Times, found that people who have jobs that put them in the spotlight are likely to die sooner than people holding more traditional jobs.

 

Musicians, actors and professional athletes lived the shortest lives.  Musicians, actors and professional athletes usually died at about 77, while academics, economists, politicians and people in business had an average lifespan of 82 to 83 years.

The researchers acknowledge the study does not provide any conclusive answers.

I think the key to a long life is to treat people the way you would want them to treat you, be honest, work hard and keep true friends and family close.
