It really depends on your perspective.

I mean, in general teenagers are healthier than adults because they're younger, and great health comes with youth! On top of an incredibly fast metabolism, teens have very strong immune systems. By the way, this is just teenagers. Very young children are actually more comparable to the elderly, in terms of certain aspects of health, than to teenagers.

Anyway, teenagers are also known to do some unhealthy things. For one thing, they drink and eat fairly unhealthy beverages and foods. Energy drinks, sodas, chips, all of that. It seems they also spend a lot of time playing Video Games, and this seems to facilitate the unhealthy diet. You wouldn't believe how fast a 12 pack of pepsi disappears when you're playing a video game. This isn't necessarily all teenagers by the way, but it's a good portion of them. Anyway, many of them also don't get outside that often in terms of exercise. Sure, schools have gym classes, but it's been shown that gym class doesn't actually increase exercise time that much. Basically it comes down to, if a teenager doesn't want to exercise in gym, they're not going to.

I feel a little hesitant about saying 'most teens' because I try to avoid generalizations. However, I'll go for it! Most teens are unhealthy because of poor diet paired with lack of exercise. The thing is, you'd be surprised what the teenage body can handle. For many teenagers, as long as these habits don't continue into adulthood, they're usually healthy as adults. Teenagers can take a punch went it comes to these kinds of things!
