A study has found that younger people are in poorer health than their parents were at that same age.
The results show that adults are more likely to have high blood pressure or diabetes than the previous generation, as well as being more likely to be obese.
The study looked at thousands of adults aged between 20 years of age to 50 years of age over 25 years.
The specifics say that men in their 30s are 20% more likely to be overweight and women in their 20s are twice as likely to be overweight.
Researchers say it is as if today’s adults are 15 years older, based on the body’s condition, than their parents or grandparents were at that age.
One of the researchers says it goes to show that we need to practice a healthier diet and to exercise more.
The study also found that the younger generation had more instances of high blood pressure
He says illnesses in this generation are more likely to be obesity-related rather than from smoking or drinking, as in the previous generation.
