“Too Young to Die, Too Old to Worry”

Source: The New York Times, Sept 20, 2014 Jason Karlawish, in an op-ed piece for The New York Times, asks “when should we set aside a life lived for the future and, instead, embrace the pleasures of the present?” He notes that the United States Preventive Services Task Force finds that after certain ages, the benefits of prevention are not worth the risks and hassles of testing, surgeries and medications. He suggests that a national investment in communities and services that improve the quality of our aging lives might help us to achieve not only life, but happiness.
