For a hint how old you will be when you die, or at least how long a life insurance company expects you to live, you can fill in this questionnaire of 20 easy questions. This Life Expectancy test can only be used until the age of 70 years and only if you are healthy. If for instance you have diabetes or a heart disease, this test is not applicable. Derived from science magazine Nature 429, page 149, year 2004.
You can fill in 2 where it says +2 etc. There are no checks on what you fill in.
From an intense lifestyle you die early! So: relax and be happy.
The big surprise for me was: Bachelors die earlier.
