How old do you think you're going to get? Chances are whatever number popped into your head, you're going to outdo it.
That's because, in the past three decades, life expectancy rates for U.S. men have jumped from 70 to 79 and for women from 77 to 83. And the longer you live, the longer you're going to live. Today, the average 65-year-old will live until age 84. But that means half of all 65-year-olds will surpass that.
That's why you need to be "AgeProof," which happens to be the title of my new book. My co-author, Dr. Mike Roizen of the Cleveland Clinic, and I define it as living longer without running out of money or breaking a hip.
You need control of both your health and your money to make AgeProofing possible. Because if you're not healthy, you're going to spend all your money trying to get there. And if you're not financially secure, even one health incident has the potential to wipe you out.
