Are We Weaker Vessels? - Seniors make more MD visits than 10 yrs ago

Food for thought. Are we getting soft? Today's seniors make more visits to the doctor than older people did 10 years ago, reports USA Today, in, "Aging population making more visits to the doctor's." I think this statistic is very telling, "The number of medical visits increased 26% between 1996 and 2006, significantly higher than the 11% population growth during that period." I'll admit, as a 50-something, I'm not very hardy. This should be a wake-up call, and tough look in the mirror for ourselves.
