Baby Boomers Living Longer Than Parents, But Not As Healthy

Posted: Updated:

  Baby Boomers are living longer than their parents... but a new study finds they're not necessarily as healthy.

  A new study finds those born between 1945 and 1964 are more likely to suffer from obesity, high blood pressure and high cholesterol compared to their parents.

  They're also more likely to drink and less likely to exercise.

  The good news is they're less likely to smoke and they suffer fewer heart attacks than their parents did.
