Study: Looks Affect Your Chance Of Illness

Posted: Updated:

Are you too good looking to get sick?

A new study from the University of Cincinnati says the more physically attractive you are, the less likely you are to have health problems.

More specifically, attractive people are less likely to get tinnitus, asthma, diabetes, and high blood pressure.

According to the study, they are also likely to feel healtier, take less time off of work, and get diagnosed with fewer physical and mental health conditions over the span of their lives.

The study is based on a study of 15,000 men and women between the ages of 24 and 35, who have been monitored since age ten.

Researchers say these findings support the theory that attractiveness is a marker of healthy genes.
