Early retirement is a quick route to an early death

Dream all you want about winning a lottery and quitting work but be glad you’ll be a loser. If you’re a man, retiring early can kill you, new research says.

LiveScience.com reports that men had an increased risk of death before age 67 when they retired early.

“According to our estimates, one additional year of early retirement causes an increase in the risk of premature death of 2.4 percentage points (a relative increase of about 13.4 percent, or 1.8 months in terms of years of life lost),” the researchers said.
