    Health Hub ImageYou may think that you are the responsible one in the family, but our latest research suggests that it’s often the younger generation looking after the old when it comes to healthy lifestyle.

    Dr Chris Tomkins, head of proactive health at AXA PPP healthcare, commented: “We know that many people in their forties and fifties are not taking their health seriously enough, ignoring health concerns that could lead to future issues.
