Millennials are on track to be in poorer health than the previous generation, and experts warn that the new trend could mean higher health care costs and a shorter life span.

Millennials’ worse health due to  an increase in behavioral issues such as depression and addiction, hypertension, high cholesterol, and prescription meds according to a report released by insurer Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Millennials are people who were born between 1981 and 1996, and Generation Xers were born between 1965 and 1980.
