Re: maybe work keeps you alive?
If you look at the original study
, the difference is not so apparent. The following graph shows survival rate of people retired at 55 who survived to 65 (undoubtfully those without significant health problems), compared to those who retired at 65, ie. it compares longevity starting at 65. I really don't see that big a difference.
