WASHINGTON (CBSDC) – The Boomer generation’s overall health has been on a sharp decline.
Australian researchers from Adelaide’s three universities have completed the first stage of a report on the generation born between the end of the Second World War and the mid-1960s.
Professor Graeme Hugo from the University of Adelaide said the findings were alarming and evidence that new public policies were needed.
“We have to do something now in terms of reducing obesity as a factor if we’re going to manage health costs into the future, but I think more importantly if baby boomers are going to be able to lead active and productive lives in their later years,” he told ABC.
Seventy-six million American were born between 1945 and 1964, representing a population that is significant on account of its size alone.
