They say it isn't over 'til the fat lady sings.  And if the fat lady's voice is high, she might be around for a while.  A new study says that the higher you can sing, the longer you can live.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in today's "Housecall for Health":

History has shown that, on average, women live longer than men.  But one new study says it could depend on your vocal range.  Research from Wayne St. University in Detroit shows that women with high voices, like soprano opera singers, have high estrogen levels - and longer lifespans - than those with a deeper register.

The findings confirm scientists suspicions that estrogen provides protective health benefits.
