RETIREMENT 'HARMFUL TO HEALTH', STUDY SAYS
(May 17th 2013)

Retirement has a detrimental impact on mental and physical health, a new study has found.
The study, published by the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA), a UK think tank, found that retirement results in a "drastic decline in health" in the medium and long term.

The IEA said the study suggests people should work for longer for health as well as economic reasons.
The government already plans to raise the state pension age.

The study, which was published in conjunction with the Age Endeavour Fellowship, a charity, compared retired people with those who had continued working past retirement age, and took into account possible confounding factors.

Philip Booth, programme director at the IEA, said the government should go further to deregulate labour markets and allow people to work for longer.

No 'normal' retirement age
"Working longer will not only be an economic necessity, it also helps people live healthier lives," he said.

Edward Datnow, chairman of the Age Endeavour Fellowship, said: "There should be no 'normal' retirement age in future.

"More employers need to consider how they will capitalise on Britain's untapped grey potential and those seeking to retire should think very hard about whether it is their best option."

The study suggests there is a small boost to health immediately after retirement, before a significant decline in the longer term.

Retirement is found to increase the chances of suffering from clinical depression by 40%, while you are 60% more likely to suffer from a physical condition.

The effect is the same for men and women, while the chances of becoming ill appear to increase with the length of time spent in retirement.

Let us rejoice that we are poor,

And have no gold to keep:

We do not need to bar the door

Ere we can go to sleep.

Boredom is the keynote of poverty -- of all its indignities,

it is perhaps the hardest of all to live with

for where there is no money there is no change of any kind.

I have just remembered that we were told by former Prime Minister Raila Odinga that, on 7 July 2014 (Saba Saba) Kenya will NEVER be the same again. Has anything changed?

Robert Macharia   What? Raila to go into retirement? Did his father retire? Raila will die trying to become president of Kenya, just like his father. Just wait patiently and see.

MANY PEOPLE ARE HORRIFIED AT THE PROSPECT OF REJECTION. HERE IS SOME GOOD ENCOURAGEMENT...

Madonna rejected - in writing..

When the Queen of Pop finally signed with Sire Records in 1982, her debut album sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. She used this early rejection as motivation, as this respected producer didn't believe she was "ready yet." She's now the best selling female artist of all time.
