Connor McDade's curator insight, December 4, 2013 9:50 PM

This article opens by demonstrating societal advances over the past decades, in order to demonstrate which demographics have been most limited from advancement. In the past century, life expectancies have skyrocketed due to advanced science, medicine, and nutritional knowledge. However, this life expectancy boost has been driven almost entirely by the most educated members of society. "About 40 percent of the least-educated African American males who make it to age 25 will die before they are 65, the study found, as will 22 percent of the most-educated. For all other groups, the chances of dying by age 65 are only 10 percent." The study brings attention to glaring gaps, not just in academic achievement, but also in sheer longevity and health; a relationship that cannot be ignored.

Jessica Koporetz's curator insight, May 13, 2014 4:46 PM

Researchers point to education for a longer and healthier life. Young black men that are in school are safer than they are in the streets.  They are not exposed to gang life, drugs, alcohol, etc. Instead they are focused on gaining knowledge and establishing a career.  But, the confusing statistic is the following “About 40 percent of the least-educated African American males who make it to age 25 will die before they are 65, the study found, as will 22 percent of the most-educated.  For all other groups, the chances of dying by age 65 are only 10 percent.”(Peters-Smith) Why is this number so high if they are removed from the toxic environment?  Is it because the black man is always having to prove that they are intelligent, hardworking, worthy of having a job or money for that matter?

Idalia Veguilla's curator insight, May 14, 2014 7:56 PM

Life span and education are related.  The more education someone has the more likely they are to live longer.  This makes sense considering uneducated people make unhealthy food choices.
