Is "a healthy lifestyle" a thing of the pass?

Introduction

Being a healthy adult starts with being a healthy teenager. It's important to understand that the choices you make about eating and exercise make a difference. Eating foods that are good for us and staying active make us feel better and helps our bodies to accomplish amazing things.Not surprisingly, the more healthy habits people had, the longer their lifespan. This is one of those situations where I wish I could reprint their graphs for you, because they’re so cool. 

In the earlier generation they used to have time to get involved in social activities, such as parties, sporting events, talking to friends or going to a park. Nowadays my generations spends a lot of time in front of the computer, or watching TV and spend most of their time chatting with their friends on their mobile phones or chatting online more than doing anything else.

What will the consequences be?

Are we going to life as longer as our grandparents if we continued to keep unfit?
