"An apple a day keeps the doctor away" is a very well-known saying. For the elderly, though, it is particularly good advice. Living and eating well is the key to staying both healthy and wealthy in your retirement.

Your choice of public or private health services has both costs and consequences. If you choose public services, you will be faced with long waiting times. If, however, you choose private services instead, it will be more expensive. The problem is made worse as most elderly people don't have medical insurance. Staying healthy, then, is a good way to reduce the costs of any future medical expenses. Start taking exercise and eating well now and you will find "good health means good wealth".
