Name of the Game: Your health and wealth

By Steve Savant

When it comes to health it seems that there are two segments of the population: those who pursue a healthy lifestyle, and those who don't. Over the last generation, Americans have moved towards a tobacco-free environment in public settings. Present day society, in general, is more health-conscious than in any preceding generation (which is not to say that the present generation is the healthiest). But with a culture of medical advancements, combined with emphasis on proper diet and exercise, Americans are moving in the right direction in healthy living.

All these health factors can impact wealth accumulation. Online syndicated columnist and talk show host Steve Savant interviews impaired risk experts Joe Brita and Charlie Kuhn as they touch on the mortality revolution taking place in the financial community.
