Live long and pros­per

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

IWAS heart­ened to read Agromenes’s ar­ti­cle ‘Age is just a state of mind’ (Fe­bru­ary 8). At the age of nearly 83, I live an ac­tive life and con­sider it in­sult­ing and un­just for there to be dis­crim­i­na­tion due to longevity. I live in South Africa and fre­quently travel to Europe, but it seems im­pos­si­ble to ob­tain travel in­sur­ance when one is over 80.

A few years ago, I read some sta­tis­tics on life ex­pectancy—the doc­u­ment had the ti­tle ‘The en­tire pop­u­la­tion bro­ken down by age and sex’. Well, I’m far from bro­ken down, but I’m not too sure about the sex. Roger Sum­mers, Western Cape, South Africa
