Today I saw my financial advisor. He recommended I get disability insurance. I said, what are the most common causes? He said, mental problems, health problems, and car accidents. For me I suppose it would be bike accidents. But I said, no thanks. He recommended I get a longterm health care insurance. I asked what are the most common uses of this very expensive policy? He said, stroke, chronic illnesses--e.g., heart disease, diabetes, cancer etc. I said, nah. He then recommended I move some money from here to there, bla bla bla. I said okay. I figure it will all go away in the crash of 2025 anyway. But it won't matter because I hope to be healthy and able to work until the day I die. I like working and if I feel good, why should I stop? So why do I need to save money? Well, I'm not really, I'm giving it away to financial institutions. hmm, maybe there's a better place to give it away?
This is a little bit tongue in cheek, but I do think the financial consequences of eating a truly healthy diet are truly liberating.
