CDC: Long Life Doesn't Equal A Healthy Life

Posted: Updated:
Life expectancy is longer than ever in the U.S., but that doesn't always equal a healthier life.

The CDC says 36 percent of baby boomers have been diagnosed with hypertension or heart disease, and one out of 10 have diabetes.

Doctors say good nutrition and getting plenty of exercise can delay or prevent chronic diseases.
