Baby Boomers Health Issues

If Retirement issues are the number 1 concern for our generation, then Baby Boomers Health Issues is definitely 1A!

No matter how well you prepare for your retirement, your plans can quickly go down the toilet if health issues jump up to number 1 in your retirement life. I've seen it happen with too many retirees and it really "bummed" them out.

Baby Boomers Major Health Issues

What we'll do in this section is look at some of the major health issues we're facing and see how we can prepare ourselves to anticipate and better deal with them. This is where your input will be crucial as the Ol' Boomer can only introduce the topics. It will be up to all of us to Share Our Thoughts and help each other. Okay?

Yet, here's an article from CBS News that's more positive (Yea!) "Growing Old, Baby-Boomer Style".

Before you begin to look into some of specific health issues we're facing, I need to mention a widely used risk management tool in the medical field today. It's called Metabolic Syndrome, and I strongly urge you to understand this condition as it seems to underlie many of our health issues.
