Tele shares, "Art - the breakeven point is 87."

Which makes me starting social security at 62 years of age an even smarter decision because the chances of me living to be 87 are slim to none. Which makes me glad I started taking social security at 62 years of age. If I live past 87 years age it will be because "then a miracle occurred."

I am not a vegetarian or a little guy. I rarely see big old fat men who are really old. Most of the really old males I know are little guys, thin, and not obsessed with food and eating. And when I see really old males they are usually still in pretty good shape, they can get around, and don't have arthritis (which limits mobility)and they aren't in a lot of pain. Pain produces cortisol in the body and cortisol suppresses the immune system.
