Success Secrets: Health Leads to Wealth

A great article in Yahoo Finance details new research linking health to wealth. For instance: good health lets you spend less on doctors and medicines, and more money for education or training, thus leading to a higher-paying job, and, presumably an interest in saving for retirement (since you expect to be around awhile).

Interestingly, the article mentions that entire countries can also get richer from better health.

My own suspicion would be that better health might also be correlated with higher energy levels, regular habits, and the ability to delay gratification, all of which would be linked with career and financial success.
