Going to college could extend your life.      

A new study  by The Brookings Institute showed that just one year of college lowered the risk of an early death by 15 to 19 percent.

The study also found that increased college education led to both higher earnings and higher rates of health insurance.

According to the study, college graduates had a decrease in deaths from cancer and heart disease.
