806 Health Tip: Living Forever Is Not All It’s Cracked Up To Be
Growing up you think, you know what, I want to live forever. I mean if I can continue to be in great shape....why not. Who doesn't want to be like Betty White. She is outliving everyone else and in good health and mind.
So really think about this. How old would you love to live to be? Would you want to live to be 100? They surveyed over 2,000 people and 17% would want to live forever. Again that is if we are in good health. Coming in with just as many votes is to live to be between 90 and 100.
Those were the 2 most popular answers. Only about 3% would be OK kicking it before they even hit 70. I always thought I wanted to live forever but really I'm OK being somewhere in the 80 to 100 range. You know that the longer you live the stress from life is still there. I also don't want to be that person wasting away in a nursing home either. So that being in good health is very important. Heck, if I could have the energy level and state of mind I do now.....up to about 100 I would be all over that.
Men were actually almost twice as likely to want to live forever. A whopping 21% of them polled felt like that was a good idea. See us women are a little more practical. Only 12% of us say that living forever sounded like a good idea.
All I know is I don't want to be in that group of 9% of the people polled who want to live to be 200. I just say no to that.
