40 Questions To Predict Your Life Expectancy

When it comes to life expectancy and centenarians, there are few people more qualified than Thomas Perls MD, MPH. Perls is known around the world as the founder and director of The New England Centenarian Study: the largest study of centenarians and their families ever undertaken.

Based on his vast knowledge and research, Perls has created the Living To 100 Life Expectancy Calculator which claims to be able to estimate  just how long you’re going to live for. ‘The Living to 100 Life Expectancy Calculator uses the most current and carefully researched medical and scientific data in order to estimate how old you will live to be,’ the website reads. ‘Most people score in their late eighties… how about you?’

    There are a total of 40 questions you are required to answer after you’ve entered your date of birth, gender and location. Each of these questions is related to one of five categories: Personal, Lifestyle, Nutrition, Medical and Family. Here are a few of the questions so you know what to expect if you decide to undergo the test:

      3
        5
          7
            9
              10

                It took me about six minutes to complete the calculator, which suggests I should live until I’m 84-years-old, which is pretty good in my opinion.

                  Of course, these sorts of online ‘medical’ tests should never be taken too seriously. If you would like to have your health checked you should always go straight to your doctor rather than relying on the internet to give you the answers. If you’d like to have your life expectancy calculated, you can find the calculator here. Let us know what age you got!
