    My tax guy told me: When buying life insurance, keep in mind
    that your hobbies can have a significant impact on the size
    of your premiums. If high risk sports like scuba diving, race-car driving or parachute jumping
    are activities you frequently engage in, then you will likely pay higher rates to get insurance coverage.
    While many are tempted to hide their activities, be aware
    that accident claims can be denied when participation in such sports
    is not disclosed.
