Lifespan and social status: Why your boss will probably live longer than you


43rd President George W. Bush invited then President-Elect Barack Obama and former Presidents George H. W. Bush, Bill Clinton, and Jimmy Carter to a meeting in the Oval Office on January 7, 2009.

From BBC Health Check:

- Your boss will probably live longer than you.

- President Barack Obama’s job has possibly more responsibility than any other in the world, yet his status means he’s likely to be healthier and live longer than all his staff.

- We used to think of the top jobs as the stressful ones, with chief executives keeling over from heart attacks at the age of 50. Not anymore.

- When it comes to health, status in life is crucial.
