Babies will live to be over 100yrs of age!

October 2, 2009

This is great news; my brother in law just became a father, like, 2 days ago, so yay for little Aiden. :)  But waitaminute, haven't we been hearing that TEH FAT is going to kill our kids earlier than ever, that for the first time in history, a generation has been born that will not outlive its' parents, because of the dreaded OBESITY??!!?!? Well, looks like someone lied, seeing as how obesity is a 'chronic disease'.  (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/8284574.stm)

Professor Christensen said that in the UK and other countries there was evidence of a postponement in the limitations and disabilities caused by ill-health, despite an increase in chronic diseases.

This was because of improvements in the diagnosis and treatment of illnesses such as heart disease and cancer.

He said: "Increasing numbers of people at old and very old ages will pose major challenges for health-care systems.

"Present evidence, however, suggests that people are not only living longer than they did previously, but also they are living longer, with less disability and fewer functional limitations."
