Study: U.S. presidents tend to live longer than their peers


The Associated Press



CHICAGO -- White House wannabes take note: Contrary to the idea that being president speeds up aging, a study shows that many U.S. commanders in chief have actually lived longer than their peers. 


Using life expectancy data for men the same age as presidents on their inauguration days, the study found that 23 of 34 presidents who died of natural causes lived several years longer than expected. 


The four former presidents still alive have already lived longer than predicted, or likely will because they're in good health, the study said.
