Research Question Impact of having an education and if it at all leads to the impact of having a positive healthy lifestyle

I am performing my research on the impact of having an education and if it at all leads to the impact of  having a positive healthy lifestyle. I have performed research and found great sources that support my research topic in an adequate way. Through my findings I was able to find connects between two important factors.

I will further explain my reasonings with support that I have found from various sources.

It was also proven that individuals that are educated will go to yearly check ups frequently unlike those who do not have an education.


In the first source that I found Mirowsky and Ross (1988) describe the realtionship between educated individuals and the achievement of having a healthy lifestyle. The study also demonstrates the importance of passing on and making sure their children also obtain a healthy lifestyle.In order to obtain all the data there was a random data sampling performed. Participants between the ages of 18 and 95 were telephoned and interviewed.

The question is “Do individuals have control over a healthier lifestyle”(Ross,Wu 2008). This question was proven correct those who have a education will have a healthier lifestyle over all regardless of

I already have a few sources and have began my lit review. I will attach what I have. If you can continue and correct spelling please do not plagiarize. I need four more sources. Please use the outline that I HAVE. I need four more sources. Each finding which I have them both labeled, have to be anywhere between 2-5 paragraphs and a conclusion is needed.
