Scientists create a ‘calculator’ that can check how many years you’ll live

Published on

UK scientists have developed an application capable of predicting a person’s estimate of life, as well as the risk of having a heart attack or stroke in the next decade.

Using anonymous medical records as a basis, a group of experts from the University of East Anglia developed the MyLongevity service, through which it is possible to calculate how many years one has left.

To estimate how long a person will live, the system uses information such as their weight, gender, and blood pressure. It also takes into account the area in which you live and whether you have conditions such as diabetes or high cholesterol.

Those who wish to estimate their life expectancy must first and foremost know English, since, for the time being, the service has not been translated into other languages.

In the first part, it is necessary to report age, sex, ethnicity, height and weight. In this section, you also need to choose the rating of the region where you live in terms of prosperity.

In the second part, the person should add more information about their medical history, detailing any health problems they may have. One needs to answer, among other things, if he/she is diabetic, if he/she has high blood pressure and if is a smoker.

According to the World Health Organization data, in 2016, the average number of years a person lives on our planet is 72 years. Women have a longer life expectancy than men. On average, females live 74.2 years, compared to 69.8 years for males.
