One Guarantee We Can Make

Some predictions go awry...

Even with our faith in facts and research, any prediction comes with some uncertainty. There's always a chance something can go wrong.

But if you're over the age of 50, I can guarantee one thing with 100% certainty: You're in for more medical testing in your future.

For one thing, you'll get more tests because medical science will develop more tests. My father was an ophthalmologist... When he started practicing, he relied on a magnifying glass. By the time I was in medical school, we could analyze a patient's DNA and run dozens of other tests to get the diagnosis.

The other part of it is age...

We're all getting older, and getting older means more medical expenses. The average working-age person requires about $7,000 per year in health care costs... compared with about $19,000 per year on average for folks aged 65 and older.

Put another way, the average American racks up $300,000 in medical bills in a lifetime, and nearly $200,000 of that comes after age 65.

And the increases only accelerate from there. According to a study from the Kaiser Family Foundation, a health-policy nonprofit, Medicare spends an average of $5,562 annually for 66-year-old enrollees... while annual costs double to $11,618 by age 80.

So you and I are destined to receive more health care as we age. But we're not the only ones getting older... America is aging rapidly in general.

In 2010, 40 million folks in the United States were over the age of 65 (just 13% of the population). By 2030, we'll have 72 million (or 19% of the population) at that age. That means us geezers represent nearly a 50% larger share of the population. Take a look...

These trends mean two things – a greater drain on folks' retirement and more profits for companies in the health space.

I don't know about you, but I don't want to give my hard-earned dollars to already wealthy executives. I'd rather use my money on things that let me enjoy life... not on medications, doctor's visits, and hospital stays.

And with high inflation and stocks in a bear market, you're probably worried about the future of your retirement.

You might be focused on just trying to weather out the storm to protect the wealth you have left.

But next Tuesday, I'm going to show folks how to recover, protect, and compound their wealth with the lowest-risk wealth compounders in the markets.

And this approach could show you astonishing, quadruple-digit profit potential...

It involves a massive story that almost no one understands.

Everything I've done in the past four decades has been leading up to this moment.

I hope you'll join me next week as I share the biggest financial opportunity I've ever seen... in any market... any asset... any sector... anywhere.

Q: What's your opinion on vitamin D supplements? – J.B.

A: This is one of the most controversial topics we discuss. But it's important, so I'm always happy to answer questions...

Some folks might have seen the recent news about vitamin D overdosing. A paper in the BMJ journal recently discussed a man in the U.K. who overdosed on vitamin D after taking more than 20 vitamin D supplements each day. He was getting much more than 100,000 IU each day. This left him with a host of health issues that include abdominal pain, cramping in his legs, and ringing in his ears.

Don't make this dangerous and potentially life-threatening mistake...

I've said this for years... Taking regular, large doses of vitamin D is dangerous. The maximum amount of vitamin D you need is 800 IU a day. You can get most of this amount by spending a few minutes outside.

It's true that people who live in areas that don't get much sun in the winter can become deficient in vitamin D. In those cases, some people may benefit from occasional, small doses.

However, some people are taking far too much vitamin D in supplement form without concrete evidence that it helps. We know some of the risks of having too much vitamin D include kidney failure.

We covered the dangers of fat-soluble vitamins (including vitamin D) here and delved deeper into the dangers of vitamin D supplements here.
