A recent report released by a team of researchers at the University of Adelaide has unveiled that baby boomers, the people born post world war second and before the mid-1960s, are the ones with the highest obesity rates in Australia.
It is being said that these people are fatter even in comparison to their parents at the same age. Also, they are more fragile than them, in relation to their parents. Besides, presently, any age group in the nation would turn up with a comparatively less obesity rate only.
South Australia, as per the team’s say, is realizing obese cases in up to more than 30% baby boomers. The rates are found to be double amid baby boomers in the workforce than their parents. And 20% are even experiencing one or two chronic health conditions.
Health experts are concerned since, the ratio of them to their previous generation in terms of three or more health conditions was also 700% higher. The report says that urgent action, including introduction of new public policies, was needed to address the issue.
"We have to do something now in terms of reducing obesity as a risk factor if we're going to manage health costs into the future”, said Professor Graeme Hugo.
