Study: Presidents don't age faster than common people
SAN FRANCISCO (KGO) -- A new study challenges the common belief that presidents age faster than the rest of us.
Before and after photos of dark-haired presidents who quickly turn grey may lead a person to believe that they age faster than the common people, but a study in the Journal of the American Medical Association shows 23 of 34 presidents who died of natural causes lived, on average, to 78.
Experts suggest presidents livel onger than the average person because they're educated, wealthy and have access to the best medical care.
