What makes older people in Asia happy

(HealthDayNews) -- What would make you happy in your golden years? Lots of money? Friends? A good book and a place to warm your toes?

According to the Asia Pacific Journal of Public Health, you'll probably be happy if you can just chew.

In a survey of 1,544 Japanese people over age 65, those who felt their chewing ability was good also felt they had good quality of life, good health and were able to understand conversations easily.

Those who had chewing problems felt they had a poor quality of life, poor health and couldn't follow conversations.
