Hi Dave,

I'm curious about the evidence for the argument that more education enhances one's ability to make difficult short term decisions related to health behavior. How would educational attainment account for this, separate from the effects of health literacy? It seems more plausible that difficult short term decision making is related to total stress burden, perceived cost/benefit of making behavioral change. These I think are linked to the advantages through employment and income that are afforded to people with higher levels of education.
