Is retirement hazardous to your health?

In a paper for the National Bureau of Economic Research, economists concluded that "complete retirement leads to a 23-29% increase in difficulties associated with mobility and daily activities, an 8% increase in illness conditions, and an 11% decline in mental health."
In my opinion, retirements need to be fully planned and prepared, just like a another job.
