In Canada: Boomer longevity threatened by "environment of excess"

"The baby-boom generation may have invented aerobics, turned tennis into a lifestyle and propelled dozens of diet and medical books up bestseller lists. But the sum isn't as healthy as all of those parts.

Recent news indicates that 73 per cent of Canadians 45 to 64 years old are overweight or obese, making extra poundage the biggest health threat in the land. As boomers hit their 60s, heart-disease rates will probably start spiking. Some experts even worry that this age group might not live as long as their parents, reversing a century of trends."
