It’s not a news headline, but this story is worth telling.
A new study has found that the older the Baby Boom generation, the more likely they are to be eating junk food.
It’s not that older generations are suddenly more picky eaters.
In fact, they may be eating more junk food, according to the study, which was conducted by a team of researchers at the University of Washington.
The team used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), which began in 1982 and is the largest nationally representative survey of American adults.
About half of the survey respondents were 65 and older.
“The younger people are, the higher their risk of obesity,” study author Andrew Freedman, a University of California, Los Angeles professor of epidemiology, told the Los Angeles Times.
He added that this suggests that “they may be less responsive to advice on healthy eating.”
The study looked at how adults aged 65 and over in the United States consumed foods from the first two waves of the NHANES in 1985, 1995 and 2003.
Participants who were 65 or older at the time were asked about their eating habits in these years.
They also were asked to rate how satisfied they were with their health.
Results showed that older people who were living at home were more likely than those living in large cities to report that they were satisfied with their diets.
However, they were more satisfied with eating at home, but not as much, the study found.
And, older people were less satisfied with the food they were eating.
While this doesn’t mean older people are “less healthy” or less able to manage their health, the researchers said that it could be due to their “increased reliance on packaged foods.”
“People are consuming more foods and less healthy foods,” Freedman told the Times.
“We know that if we’re consuming fewer packaged foods, it could contribute to chronic disease.”
The researchers also noted that they found that older Americans were less likely to be overweight or obese, but more likely not to exercise.
“When they’re not exercising, older Americans are more likely on a low-fat diet, and less likely on an aerobic exercise regimen,” Freedmen said.
“They’re not participating in physical activity.
We know that these factors are related to a greater risk of chronic diseases.”
