Millennials are on track to be in poorer health than the previous generation, and Ohio medical experts warn that the trend could translate into higher health care costs and shorter lives.

Millennials’ worse health is largely a result of an increase in behavioral issues such as depression and addiction, but also of hypertension and high cholesterol, among other factors, according to a report released by insurer Blue Cross Blue Shield.

The opioid epidemic also might be a factor, according to the November report.
