The current generation always remembers being far more physically active than "kids today."

Yes, every generation thinks the current one stinks. I was guaranteed one of two things for Christmas each year, either a new football or basketball. Because we just wore them out.

As far as obesity and activity, the younger generation looks like they'll have a shorter life expectancy then the previous generation. If that happens, it will be a first.
