Citaat betreffende een van de vele SHARE studies over ouder worden in Europa:
(December 2017) People who decide to migrate to a different country face many challenges: leaving behind friends and family members,
learning an unknown language, or creating a new financially stable existence, to mention only three. Thus, restarting your life from scratch
might be an exhausting experience that leads to worsened health, one could conclude. Yet on the contrary, many scientific publications
show that immigrants often seem to be even healthier than a country’s native population. This holds true for Australia, Germany, the UK,
as well as the USA. But does it apply to any country? The interdisciplinary research team of A. Constant, T. García-Muñoz, S. Neuman
and T. Neuman has now focused on this question by examining the health of immigrants in Europe and Israel. Their findings show: it does not.
