People Slow To React Are More Likely to Die Prematurely (DUH!)
The results of this study seem, well, obvious. Being slow to react can get you eaten, injured or splattered across your computer screen. While we probably already know this, a new study offers evidence of how much speed of response still matters: In men and women from ages 20 to 59, slower than average reaction time turned out to be a pretty good predictor of premature death. (YIKES).
