Is 35 the new 40?

Personally, I think this study is a little off. So many people are waiting to have children until they are in their late 30's these days. If they feel like they are already middle age, why would they wait so long? It just doesn't add up. I doubt all these people are having children and thinking they will be too old and unhealthy to raise them. What do you think?

FROM NBC: Is 35 the new 40? A study suggests these stressful times are making adults feel much older than they actually are. A study by the Philips Center for Health and Well-being finds 40 is no longer linked with middle age, rather many Americans feel they reach that milestone at age 35.

Their survey found more people in the 35 to 44 age bracket believe their health has changed for the worse.
They go to the doctor more often, and report much more stress than their younger counterparts. Most cited worries about the economy and healthcare costs as their reasons for feeling older. The survey also found Americans are more likely to rank their health as better than it really is -- 39 percent thought the Y were overweight -- far lower the the two-thirds number found by the National Center for Health Statistics.
