The generation of millenials, that is those born in the years 1981-1996, loses health faster and has a lower life expectancy than the previous generation. To such conclusion the Association of health insurers Blue Cross Blue Shield Association in the United States, published a report on the organization’s website.
According to experts, with age, the sooner Millennials begin to suffer from hypertension, high cholesterol, depression, hyperactivity and effects of Smoking. The mortality rate increased by 40 percent compared to generation X, the people born from 1965 to 1979. As a result, in the near future will significantly increase health care costs, which will be 33 percent more than that of generation X at the appropriate age.
Deteriorating health will lead to increasing unemployment, slowdown in economic growth and will cost about $ 4,500 per year per capita.
Earlier it was reported that scientists at Duke University found that among members of generation X and the Millennials is expected to decrease life expectancy and increase the risk of premature death.
