Health Advice for Men I can believe in
A man's chances of dying early are cut by a fifth if their bride is between 15 and 17 years their junior.
The risk of premature death is reduced by 11 per cent if they marry a woman seven to nine years younger.
The study at Germany's Max Planck Institute also found that men marrying older women are more likely to die early.
The results suggest that women do not experience the same benefits of marrying a toy boy or a sugar daddy.
Though "I'm only doing it for my health" might not wash as an excuse with my present child bride.
And for once with these health stories they hint at how the correlation and causation might be linked in a non-obvious way. It isn't the rolling around with a nubile that keeps you young, it is the fact you are healthy and wealthy that enables you to attract the nubile in the first place. That buggers it for me then, back to eating the lettuce.
