According to the New York Times, a report to be published tomorrow in the New England Journal of Medicine says that obesity may cause a significant drop in the average life expectancies for Americans.
BOSTON, March 16 - For the first time in two centuries, a generation of children in America may have shorter life expectancies than their parents, according to a report that contends that the rapid rise in childhood obesity, if left unchecked, may shorten life spans by as much as five years.
What would that do for Social Security?
