The article discusses the report released by First Consulting Group about the increase in the over-65 population in the U.S. The report says the increase will be a result of the aging baby boomers, adding new demands on an already stressed-out health system. By 2030, 14 million boomers Hill be living with diabetes, the report adds. Furthermore, almost half of the boomers will live with arthritis and that number peaks to just over 26 million in 2020.
