Would you be surprised to learn there is bad news to having better health? While you'd enjoy better health now a new study finds that you'll also be living longer as a result ... and that's going to cost you. A lot.
A report from Boston College's Center for Retirement Research finds that a longer life also means more illnesses later that can cost as much as $105,000. Naturally the health insurance industry has seized on this information to sell more long-term care insurance.
So if you want to help relieve the strain on Social Security then keep eating hamburgers every day and start smoking. Just think of all the money it will save you ... and you'll be helping all the rest of us that are working hard every day to be healthier!
