New study shows dire future for boomers and healthcare

The first Boomers will turn 65 in 2011 and, according to today's report, more than 37 million of them -- six out of 10 -- will be managing more than one chronic condition by 2030. Also by 2030:

-- 14 million Boomers will be living with diabetes -- that's one out of every four Boomers.

-- Almost half of the Boomers will live with arthritis and that number peaks to just over 26 million in 2020.

-- More than one out of three Boomers -- over 21 million -- will be considered obese.
