New theories to understand why some people live longer.
Weird calculator. Even with all the bad choices I selected, it's giving me a lot longer to live than I would have expected.
Fake ones work. I used firstname.lastname@example.org.It's a shame they wanted an email address, I'd have been interested in seeing the results.
Good thing I don't eat hotdogs, however I do eat some processed meat (probably 1-4 servings a week). I suspect even if you pick the absolute worst options, most people will have a life expectancy around 80 years.Never eat hotdog again and maybe you could be 100!
Is there something you have planned for which you specifically need to live that long? Some mission or passion project that you must complete and that will require you to be alive for a long time? You do realize that past 80, you will just get more and more feeble and really unable to take care of yourself, much less do anything else.It has me at 95, but I'm aiming for past that.
There's a lot of living I haven't done, and I plan to do it.Is there something you have planned for which you specifically need to live that long? Some mission or passion project that you must complete and that will require you to be alive for a long time?
This is not a universal truth, and evidence dictates we're likely to continue making medical breakthroughs in the next 50 years.You do realize that past 80, you will just get more and more feeble and really unable to take care of yourself, much less do anything else.
I don't put much stock into these type of things besides for just a quick laugh. There are way too many variables in life that can take us out easily. For example, my mom was feeling great until one day she had difficulty breathing. She went to the doctors and after extensive testing she found that she had an auto immune disease with her lungs that was heredity. When she was in her 20s she smoked occasionally, but had quit smoking in her early 3os. She died 5 years later. My father is nearing 80. He eats decently. What is keeping him alive and healthy is he sells icecream on the beach in the summer. He walks like 5-10 miles per day on sand. But, OTOH he is subjected to the intense rays of the sun. Especially from 10am- 3pm. And, he doesn't wear sunscreen.
In conclusion, much of our longevity is part eating healthy and getting enough exercise, but the other part is luck. Your genetics. The danger with these life expectancy calculators is it can lull you into believing that you are invincible, and that you'll live to 100. The truth is there are many things that are outside our control that can easily take us out.
