Rich People Have a Special Hormone That Helps Them Live Longer


Life is nasty, brutish, and short — unless you are wealthy. Researchers from the University College in London have determined that wealthy people have higher levels of a hormone linked to living a longer life, and apparently, having more fun: “The hormone is called DHEAS — or dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate — a natural steroid produced by the brain, adrenal glands and sexual organs. Those with higher levels of DHEAS tend to exercise more, have more hobbies and have closer relationships with friends and family.” [Wealth Report/WSJ]
