Survey Says: Can Someone Be Too Good Looking to Get Sick?

Is it possible for attractive people to have a secret to staying healthy?  A new study says it is possible.

According to News.com.au, a new study of more than 15,000 people from the University of Cincinnati found that good-looking people actually have fewer health problems than the rest of us.  They are too attractive to get sick in other words.

Attractive people are less likely to get asthma, diabetes, ADHD, and depression than the rest of us.  They also have lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and get sick with things like the flu or colds less often.

This is the biggest study to link good looks and good health.

Other studies have found that link, but they’re usually just studies of college students, this one featured a representative sample of all ages.

The researchers say the link between attractiveness and health is probably that both come from good genetics.
