    What is more important to you good health or an abundance of wealth?

    Obesity is ranked as one of the number one killers in the country. It is closely related to, Diabetes, Heart Disease and high Cholesterol. Yet most people refuse to take evasive action to combat the possibilities. Success should incorporate a healthy lifestyle.

    Good health by a long shot.  If I have good health, I can be of best service to my family and my community, I have the opportunity to pursue making more money, or doing just about anything else I put my mind to.

    Good health is the most important thing.  Having wealth and not being able to enjoy it because of poor health would be a waste.  As a healthy person you can follow your dreams and may achieve wealth along the way.  Even if I never attain wealth, I can still enjoy life because I am healthy.  I'd rather be poor and healthy than wealthy and sick.

    This is an interesting question.  Having good health seems to be the logical answer but if you don't have money you might not be able to afford clean food and water, have a gym membership, proper clothes and shoes, supplements, etc.  So, I'm going to go against the natural answer and choose money.  The more money I have the more healthy alternatives I can afford.

      Smart, intelligent answer indeed.  Money is determinant of health status.  More money affords a more healthier lifestyle; conversely, less money affords a lifestyle bereft of health. Finally, someone w/brains!

    Good health ofcourse.  I agree that we have a rather unhealthy lifestyle and too much money that we are stuffing our selves more than any other generation did.

    Good health...while sufficient money is needed for healthy food, there are many options for staying in shape that don't cost money...and the combination will end up saving a LOT of money on medical bills. Besides that, I can't take my money with me when I die, so why would I sacrifice part of my life for it?

    Good health - because then you can go about gaining an abundance of wealth.  Money without health is a bit like driving a car without wheels.

    How true is the age old dictum: If wealth is lost nothing is lost; if health is lost something is lost, but if character is lost everything is lost.

    No doubt . Good health is very very important.If the wealth is more and health is less  then how we can enjoy our life ???
    so first preference for good health itself.

    In a nutshell, good health.

    Your health is your true wealth. Being healthy is not only limited to your body, it is your mind, your attitude and having positive thoughts.  All of which is and can be used to create wealth.

    Your health: Maintain it and upgrade it folks!!
