Schertz, TX (PRWEB) July 20, 2006 -- 1HealthyBoomer.com understands that America's baby boomers optimistically see themselves as 10-15 years younger than their chronological age. Unfortunately, current research on their health status tells a very different and disturbing story. Simply put, roughly 60 percent of America's boomers are "incompletely healthy" (showing early signs and symptoms of chronic illness) and not aging well. Another 20 percent are unhealthy, while the remaining 20 percent enjoy good health.

The focus at 1HealthyBoomer.com is on building a community of "incompletely healthy" baby boomers ready to commit to a plan that will place us squarely on the path to better health. Our 7-Step Plan outlines what to do to gain health benefits, how to do it, and why it should be done. Community members are encouraged to share every aspect of the 7-Step Plan with their healthcare providers for approval and support. Moreover, members can share their journey to better health with one another in our community forum.

The final chapter in the story of America's aging boomer generation will be written over the next 20-40 years. At 1HealthyBoomer.com, our concern is that, unless boomers take action quickly to improve our health, the closing line in our final chapter will read something like this: "Most of America's baby boomers, those who once embraced the golden years as an opportunity for personal growth and giving back to their communities, lived out the last decade or more of their lives with debilitating chronic illnesses." Does this sound overly pessimistic?

Consider a recent study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (May 2006) that compared white, 55-64 year-old Americans with our peers in England. The study found that middle-aged Americans had significantly higher rates of diabetes (double the Brits), cancer (nearly double the Brits), strokes, heart disease, and lung disease. These numbers held true across all income and education levels of participants, and factored in obesity as well as smoking and drinking habits. Health professionals were stunned by the extent of the health disparities between Americans and their British peers, given that U.S. healthcare spends twice what England does per citizen.

It's a fact of life that not every "incompletely healthy" baby boomer will achieve optimal health on the 7-Step Plan -- or on any other plan, for that matter. There are simply too many variables, including genetics and environmental factors, to predict successful outcomes across the board for everyone. But we all have to try. Baby boomers owe it to ourselves, and to our children and grandchildren, to write the best possible ending -- a dignified ending -- in our final chapter.
