Gabriel Sahlgren appeared on BBC Radio 2 to discuss his research on the ill effects of retirement.
The report, published by the Institute of Economic Affairs think tank and Age Endeavour Fellowship, states that in the long-term retirees are more likely to become depressed and decline in health than those continuing to work.

The report advocates for those planning for retirement to mimic work structures or continue to work part time.
