Health or Wealth - which should come first.

July 26, 2008 8:43pm CST
People always have diverse views on any subject on this earth. My discussion today is which should you think to come first. Is it your health or your wealth. As much as I know that many would say health first, there are those who believe in wealth first. I would like to hear from both side of the fence. What is your view today on this subject?

Hello,Health and wealth are the two sides of the same coin.they are some how or other interlinked.If you have wealth you will maintain a good health and so also if you are in good health you will earn just your livelihood.thanx.

True that wealth will help you maintain health. But what if our health is already abused in gaining wealth? There got to be a balance somewhere. Thanks for the comment.

Hello creationhub, I alsways say my health first but now i have changed my mind, wealth because if you are wealthy you can look after your health better with privat health care and you get treated first because your privat patient, you can go to the gym you can eat lot of helthy and don't have worry about the price of food. So I say wealth comes first. Tamarafireheart.

I can understand your rationale. Although I am an advocate for health first, wealth is important too. Having health with no wealth is no fun either. And the other way around applies too. Don't you agree?

Health. Just think about how much wealth you could lose if you weren't in good health. All goes to the doctors. However, while I do know many people who would tell me health should be first, they often don't stick to their beliefs. They overwork themselves to see certain results, often depriving themselves of sleep, food, and time to relax. I wouldn't call them hypocrites; it's more about how sad it is that they're caught in our wage slave society.

I think wealth should come first, that way you can afford the health. Good health doesn't come free in America.

if u have good health you are wealthy. money is great & i'll take all i can get but it want buy u good health. when u are young you don't think much about health but when u are not healthy anymore you'll see that wealth can't do a thing about changing that.

I would say health comes first. It would be sad to have alot of money and be too ill to enjoy spending it. I'd like to think that if I ever get super rich, I will still be healthy enough to go and do the things I could then afford to do.

Health certainly. Without good health, one cannot enjoy the good wealth
