But the news for late retirees it isn't all bad. According to a French study, working longer may help prevent Alzheimer's disease, indicating that a late retirement may provide some benefits to brain health.
That doesn't fit the rest of the script...

Yeah, that sounds familiar. I think it was posted a week or two ago.

Study: New Retirees Less Likely to Die

Perhaps even more surprising was the fact that these early retirees had the lowest probability of death during that five-year period, even when compared to younger demographics.
That's pretty cool. I certainly feel the stress from work in my body, and I'm encouraged by the stories some people tell of getting healthier, losing weight, etc., within the first couple years of retirement. I hope to do the same.
