S. Jay Olshansky, Ph.D., of the University of Illinois at Chicago, examined the question that US Presidents may experience accelerated aging while in office by analyzing the life span of all US Presidents compared to men of their era.

Suggested reasons for this greater longevity include access to better medical care and higher levels of education and wealth, which have been documented to have powerful effects on longevity.

The research letter will be published in the Dec 7 issue of JAMA.
