Obesity, Physical Activity, and Nutrition: Age calculator shows us failing test of time

Insurer AIA has developed The Vitality Age Calculator aiming to prompt people to consider taking small steps to improve their health and wellbeing.

The calculator asks participants a range of questions about their exercise, diet, smoking, and alcohol consumption. It then produces a 'health and wellbeing' age to be compared against the participants chronological age. Gen X was the worst performing generation, while Millennials had the best BMI and drank the least alcohol making them the best performing generation. Baby Boomers did the least exercise but ate the most fruit and vegetables.
