    It's an interesting topic, if you were offered a sum of £10,000,000, would you take it over good health? If so why or why not?

    Take the money.
    You could live a very healthy, long and happy life with it.

    Common sense, no?
    Unless of course you mean I have some debilitating disease, then, health.

    Yes, I meant the latter; that you suffer from an arbitrary disease for instance cancer, or something similar to that, not knowing exactly when you're going to die.

    What's the point in money; if you can't do anything with it?
    I don't think the money would balance out the loss of quality of life. Not even close.
    I feel you can be just as happy with enough to get by.

    Mm, I understand what you mean. It's just that you could argue that money can buy experiences, luxury, comfort though that becomes a juxtaposition when placed next to pain, suffer, diseases.


    Though I would certainly pick health, for the reasons you mentioned.

    Definitely health. Money can't buy happiness whereas bad health can stop you leading a happy life!

    Poor health makes for a pretty miserable existence, no matter how big your house is.

    Health by far! I can easily find a way to make a lot of money if I really wanted to but some health conditions can't be cured with all the money in the world.

    No chance. Health is the most important thing. I'd give anything to not have health problems.

    Health, I don't care how rich I am, no amount of money can pay for good health. Plus, I'd rather earn it!

    This is a hard question. One cannot simply answer it without doubt.
