Scientists Now Claim They Can Predict How Long You Will Live!
One of the most prevalent fears of most people is the fear of death, dying, and aging. Although there are many parts of our lives we can control, death is inevitable for all people despite our many scientific advancements to prevent it. The top causes for death in men include heart disease, cancer, and unintentional injuries, and for women the top causes are heart disease, cancer, and stroke. Most of these conditions are related to aging and long-term health deterioration, and in the past it has seemed impossible to predict exactly when these afflictions would appear. However, with the improvement of modern technology, it is now possible to predict both death and rate of aging on a variety of factors. Here you will find the top 4 ways that science can predict your death date.
1. Blood Testing
There’s a reason why almost every time you go to the doctor some of your blood is drawn: a lot can be read about your body based on the contents of your blood.( RELATED ARTICLE: 5 Things You Need to Know About Your Blood Type) From cholesterol to insulin levels and more, our blood is a map for our body’s health, and a critical way doctors can find the root of our health problems. According to study about levels of four particular biomarkers in blood , higher levels of alpha-1-acid glycoprotein in the blood means the individual is far more likely to die within the next 5 years. Elevated alpha- 1-acid glycoprotein levels occur as our bodies age and deteriorate, and it is an important way doctors can accurately determine a person’s life expectancy.
2. Measuring Your Grip
Strength is a good measure of a person’s overall health and ability to recover from ailments. As we age, our strength deteriorates due to disability, cognitive decline, or overall health decline. Thus, it is possible for scientists to measure hand drip – especially if they measure it over time – to predict a person’s rate of aging.
3. Measuring Sense of Smell
As with many parts of the body, the nose needs constant cell regeneration in order to maintain our sense of smell, especially for lighter scents. As we age, our body loses its ability to regenerate cells efficiently, thus we begin to lose our sense of smell. By measuring a person’s sense of smell, it is possible for scientists to predict life expectancy. In a smell test of 3,000 men and women above age 57, this study found that those unable to accurately identify scents were far more likely to die within the next 5 years.

4. Lifestyle Test
Scientists have developed a lifestyle test that measures a person’s environment and day-to-day activities in order to accurately predict that person’s life expectancy. This test considers factors such as anxiety, exercise, and marriage status. The study finds that people with lower anxiety, people who exercise daily, and those who are happily married are much more likely to have a longer life.
These are just a few of the ways in which science can now predict your death date, and give us a glimpse into increasing our life expectancy.
