The Price of Good Health

The Price of Good Health

A friend recalled the details of a recent visit to a new primary care physician.

After two visits and exhaustive lab tests, the doctor said he was doing "fairly well" for his age.

A little concerned about that comment, my friend couldn't resist asking,
"Do you think I'll live to be 80?"

The doctor asked, "Do you smoke tobacco or drink beer or wine?"
"Oh no," my friend replied. "I'm not doing drugs, either."

Then the doctor asked, "Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?"
My friend said, "No, my other doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!"

"Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?"
"No, I don't," my friend replied."

Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?"
"No," my friend said. "I don't do any of those things."

The doctor looked at my friend and said, "Then why do you care if you live to be 80?"
