Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Olive oil is beneficial for you in so many ways.

But once a bottle of olive oil is opened, it can become rancid after a while especially with opening and closing it consistently. Buy the smaller bottles so you

will not harm your body in this way.

Consider that buying those very large bottles of olive oil may not be such a bargain after all!

VERDIGRIS

Margaret Fielding’s entire

them like saucers in a
circus act. “Verdigris”
can be defined as corrosion.
But it also glows in beauty.

SENIORS MORE VULNERABLE TO LOTTERY SCAMS

An 84-year-old may have won a record-setting lottery, but other seniors are finding themselves winning a different kind of lottery – the kind that loses them money.

It’s called a lottery scam, and data show that senior citizens are more likely than any other age group to fall victim to it and other fraudulent transactions, especially those promising prize promotions.   READ MORE HERE

WHAT IS THE MOST NUTRITIOUS
VEGETABLE YOU CAN EAT?

We all know that Americans should be eating more fruits and vegetables. But there’s a big difference between eating a handful of carrots or a tangerine, and munching on some leafy greens. The CDC recently ranked 47 of America’s most common fruits and vegetables, and 41 out of 47 tested were determined to be “powerhouse” sources of nutrition.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Did you know that your diet can help override genetic predisposition to various disease?

If you believe the old adage,

“You are what you eat”,

then make it your motto!

On a daily basis try including fruits such as avocados and berries, vegetables including the dark green ones and nuts, whole grains, and fish. These are the heart healthy, body healthy foods that will help to prevent premature aging, gain energy, and help you feel the splendor that only overall good health can bring!

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

Did you know that exercise is not only about keeping your weight in check.  It’s also about keeping your brain healthy.  Regular exercise such as walking can help promote the production of new brain cells -
no matter what your age.

So let’s lace up those sneakers and get going – both your mind and your body will thank you!

 

beware1

One of my readers received a letter from the “IRS” this week claiming there was something missing in her tax  return – but she hadn’t even filed  her return yet!

So if you receive an email, a phone call, fax or letter in the mail from an individual claiming to be from the IRS but you suspect it is not from the IRS, contact them at 1-800-829-1040 to determine if they have a legitimate need to contact you.  Be very wary and careful – there are enormous amounts of scams right now due to tax season.   And remember the IRS does not call you or email you!

important1  If sometimes you find you are not receiving our newsletter (on Thursday mornings), please check your “junk” or “spam” files.  It may have inadvertently ended up in one of those files.

 

Also one of the very first things you will see when you open the newsletter is this

“Having trouble viewing this email? Click here “.  If you will in fact click on that, it will open up the entire newsletter so that everything including all the information on the right hand side, will be visible.  This way the newsletter is much easier to read.

Max’s Healthy Tip of the Week:

All fruits and vegetables carry pesticide residues.
Buy organic or at least “pesticide free” produce
whenever possible.

Here’s a list of the dirty dozen – those fruits and veggies that must ALWAYS be organic since the contamination
in this produce goes right into the core.

They are peaches, apples, sweet bell peppers,
celery, nectarines, strawberries, cherries, pears,

 imported grapes, spinach, lettuce and potatoes.

MARC WEISS TALKS ABOUT FINANCES
EXPERT FINANCIAL ADVICE FROM MARC WEISS

Projecting Healthcare Expenses During Retirement

 

One component of retirement planning that many Americans typically underestimate is healthcare costs. It is virtually impossible to know for certain how much money you will need to spend but it is a huge mistake to underestimate that projection.

According to studies from the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI), even retirees who are eligiblefor Medicare should expect to spend substantial amounts of money to supplement that coverage. EBRI also found that women generally need to spend more money on healthcare expenses due to the statistical difference in longevity between men and women.

CLICK HERE FOR THE BULLET POINTS  that spell out a

few other interesting findings from research conducted by EBRI.

Now the question is, how much will you need to cover your healthcare expenses during retirement?

Talk to Marc today to find out the answer and get personalized analysis to help identify potential solutions.
