How Long Will You Live?

A friend sent me this test on life expectancy and health from yesterday's NYT. I don't think it's a completely accurate assessment just by virtue of the minimum information it requires but it's interesting nonetheless.

I'll share mine if you share yours...

Here's the link,

Merlot Mom --

Another good resource for figuring out life expectantcy is Real Age at The assessment takes about a half hour but it worth it. My chrono age is 56, my "real" health age is 44 and my life expectancy is 89. So I've got a ways to go!!

The NYT's article talks about salt in your diet. Check out my posting yesterday on the 20 saltiest foods in America.

Um, no. No. NO.

With my luck, it'll tell me I'm going to die tomorrow and I'll spend every day either in a state of constant paranoia, thinking, "Should I eat that? My spleen will explode if I eat that. I can't eat that!" or partying like it's 1999 and have to contend with substance-abuse related memory loss every next morning.

No, I'm just better off just not knowing.

Like jan, I'm too afraid to take that test.

Still, I think you should share your results...
