I was going through a recent story about how cancer patients experience the financial worry. As per the report “Four of every five such American patients and their spouses-caregivers in the study said they had concerns about meeting medical costs and suffered “financial stress.” Worries about paying medical costs also were tied to lower mental and physical health, the study found.”
Not only among patients, the financial worry is one of the most common factors behind poor mental health and it’s the biggest reason for crime. In this era of gadgets and increased social interaction (although mostly virtual) people need money in the bank. More than what our parents or their parents needed, we need money. Naturally, financial worry becoming more and more widespread.
