Interesting Fact - Health

According to a study published in the European Journal of Preventive Cardiology, today's 40-year-olds in Europe are experiencing problems of excess weight, high blood pressure and diabetes similar to people now in their mid-fifties.

(We might be living longer, but we are growing less healthy, and younger generations are about 15 years ahead of the older generation on the pathway to increasing frailty, disability and ill health.

The big three killers are:

Diabetes: increases the risk of heart failure and kidney failure.

Blood Pressure: a cause of heart disease, stroke and kidney disease.

Being Overweight: increases the risk of heart disease, cancer and a range of other conditions.

Something to look forward to then.)
