CCBI is very interested in the social determinants of health – one of the many topics we follow and review. This report is of concern to all seniors, not just “Boomers,” and of perhaps even graver concern to the generations following. If ‘Boomers’ are careless with their attitudes to health, should the next generation be expected to pay for that neglect? Just a thought – but one that should be important these days when we talk about social justice aspects of ethics, such as ‘stewardship.’ It cannot be right to be irresponsible about our own health, as well as that of others.
