Scientists: mother's education affects the child's lifespan
Researchers from Germany said that mother's education affects the child's lifespan.
It turns out that babies of moms with secondary education live 2 years longer than those children whose mothers have completed elementary school or have not studied at all
Academics studied the data of 3.3 thousand women and their children who inhabited the area of West Germany in the 1950s.
As a result, it turned out that the average life expectancy of children is increased if their mothers have completed a higher education institution.
Experts explained this by the fact that a child who was raised in an educated family, often leads a healthy lifestyle, eats properly and rarely has bad habits. In addition, educated mothers can provide children with a good standard of living, because they often earn very well.
