Study: Higher education can be good for your health

It turns out higher education can be good for your health.

That's according to an annual report released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Health data collected by the government suggests people with a bachelor's degree or higher live nearly nine years longer than those who don't finish high school.

Researchers say people with more education tend to avoid unhealthy behaviors. They also have better access to medical care.
