The link between health and wealth

We all know the health leads to the wealth. Here are some numbers to back it up - a study of 10 industrialized countries from the beginning of the 20th Century through the mid-1990s found that better people's health - such as better dietary and medical care - increased the rate of national economic growth by about 30%. As an example, 10% fall in cardiovascular mortality alone can generate 1% increase in per capita income.

This is no news nor surprise of course but employers should sometime understand that all this stress put upon their employees damages the companies they run in the end.
