Now, a simple blood test will tell you how long you will liv
If it’s true, it could be a game changer! Believe it or not, scientists at the Boston University claim to have discovered a blood test that could help predict lifespans. The study, published in the journal Aging Cell on Friday, used biomarker data collected from 5,000 blood samples and analysed it against the donors’ health developments over the subsequent eight years.

Together, they identified patterns which indicated both good and bad futures, specifically, their chances of getting age-related diseases such as cancer, heart disease and diabetes.

In all, the researchers generated 26 different predictive biomarker signatures. The breakthrough means patients will be able to identify realistic health risks early on -- and, crucially, modify behaviour to change the outcome....
