Your blood can reveal how generally weak your body is. Hopefully you may soon be able to take the Death Test:
A ‘Death Test’ which predicts the chance of a healthy person dying from any medical condition in the next five years has been developed by scientists.
Researchers said they were ‘astonished’ to discover that a simple blood test could predict if a person was likely to die – even if they were not ill.
They found that the levels of four ‘biomarkers’ in the body, when taken together, indicated a general level of ‘frailty’.
People whose biomarkers were out of kilter were five times more likely to die with five years of the blood test.
“What is especially interesting is that these biomarkers reflect the risk for dying from very different types of diseases such as heart disease or cancer. They seem to be signs of a general frailty in the body,” said Dr. Johannes Kettunen of the Institute for Molecular Medicine in Finland.
I have been waiting for something like this to exist for a long time. that and a test telling people what they are deficient in cuz not everyone needs multivitamin crap – they need protein or testosterone or much lesser known chemicals, amino’s and plant nutrients that could extend their life but they dont know that their unique biological makeup requires them more than any other random person. A blood test can tell you to a limited extent that you’re low in calcium or iron or some other mineral but theres no real one stop “heres my blood/urine/stool – please tell me what to eat more of or take more supplements of” regarding things like organ health status. Instead of a questionnaire and related sampling, there should just be a full readout that tells someone they need to pay specific attention to their heart or liver or state the status of their gut bacteria, etc.
hope something useful comes from this.
