I agree with you that health is far more important than money. Those who depend on money for everything often don't have the best of health but they may spend the most money on their health. As long as you are healthy you can make things that can bring you money. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this!

In my opinion both health and money are important because you can't have one without the other. Health is very important indeed as you need it to work and gain money. But sometimes in order to have a good health you need a lot of money to give to the doctors and to buy medication. I felt this on my own. Especially at an older age there are few people that can have health without spending a lot of money!

For me health is much better to choose because if we don't have a good health we are always in hospital and we will spent too much money for hospital bills and if we have a good health it is easy for us to find a job because we have a good health and after having a job we can make money.

I prefer health, though there are always ways you can save a bit of money too! I'm vegetarian, and it is quite difficult to save money when you are veggie! Organic food, pesticide-free supplies, hydroponic lettuces, certified foods, etc. But definitively health is worth it.

I think health is more important. I agree with you that once we have lost our health it doesn't matter how much money we have. There are lot of rich and famous people who have all types of money but still lose their health and there really isn't much they can do then. So I prefer to have good health.

Well, no one wants to be poor but what good is money if you have poor health. I have a friend who has done quite well financially but she suffers from rheumatoid arthritis that she has had since she was young. She has developed tolerance to the medications that used to work. She is in pain all the time and suffers complications from the illness as well as side effects from the medications that she does take. So what good is her money? The money does allow her to go to the best doctors but they do not seem to be able to do too much for her. If you do not enjoy good health, how can you enjoy your money?

It is definitely health that most important for all of us. If we have money but have a bad health, we still can't be happy. With health we can do all the activities we want and also can do some works for earning money. Without good health, we almost can't do anything even sometimes we couldn't eat without the help of others.

Health, no doubt! You'll lose all your money curing illnesses. You're quite right when you sai that we can make money as long as we are healthy.

Health is more important. With good health you can achieve any amount of wealth you need.

Of course health. People often said that "Health is expensive and sick is more expensive". So, I'll choose health cos we need lower money to pay that being sick. Moreover, I always feel so bad when I'm sick that make feel so uncomfortable to do anything. Simply, I can't enjoy my wealth if I'm sick. The last, let's keep healthy our self friend to make our self wealth.

I need money, but I treasure my health more. I prefer health because if you lose it, you cannot return it back. Unlike on money, if you lose it, you can still work hard again and gain it. I treasure my health so much. When I am sick, it will be a burden because I need to buy a medicine. It costs high sometimes.

hi jakeyangchao, When I was not experiencing to be very sick for a long time, I thought that money is very important. However, when I experienced a terrible sickness this year, I lost so much. I cannot go to work and because of that, I gained no income. I am the only one working in our family and both of my parent just receive a meager amount of pension every month. My family cannot even work at home because they have to attend at my needs especially when I am in the hospital. I realized that time that it is okay we are not that rich as long as we have good health. My mom told me that being healthy is already a wealth.

No doubt health is more important than money. Without good health no one can live in peace and happiness. Sufficient money is required to handle the necessities of live, but health is essential one and money come in a secondary position.

health is wealth. so i always prefer better health than having money. if we have good health,we can earn more money. but if we don't take care of health and run behind money always,we have to spend all those money for hospitals only. so we should take care of our health and it will automatically take care of our wealth.
