This is even funnier.

I took the "test" again as if I were 35 and I answered all the questions as closely as I could to what I WOULD have answered at that age. Of course, back then, I had no idea what my BP and cholesterol levels were because I never went to the doctor unless I was sick.

Result? I'd croak at 57! That's 3 years ago!

Life expectancy calculator - MSN Money (http://moneycentral.msn.com/investor/calcs/n_expect/main.asp - broken link)
My results said that I'll live to see 97 years old.

My great-grandmother passed away in 2005 at the age of 103 & my grandmother is still living an active life at 85 years old.
My grandmother has retired & returned to work because she said she wants continue to work until the day she dies.

I guess I better keep up the good work with my lifestyle & also follow my grandmother's footsteps.

My grand father tried this calculator and as per calculator his life expectancy is 95 yrs. His calculations was nearly correct. But the only required thing is that you must fill accurate data in the provided space, otherwise it will not show you correct results.

The later calculator gave me an extra year to live, so I guess I died last year.

87.2 years.

I like the one I used a while ago better. https://www.livingto100.com/ It said that I'd live to be 104 and I could add another 7 years if I behaved myself better. Good for fun, I suppose, but check-out time is, for the most part, unpredictable. Just as well.

Shalom,


Mahrie.

Here's an interesting chart to show you how much longer you would live, if you emigrated to another counry:

YOUR LIFE EXPECTANCY BY AGE

This is an amazing in-depth site with lots of other great charts and info in the links. For example, Colombia ranks fifth in the world in expected life for people already in their 70s (American seniors can add a year to their life by moving there), but ranks seventh in the world in rate of violence as a cause of death.

Malnutrition is five times as high in the USA as in Russia, as a cause of death.
