The Longevity Game

June 19th, 2007 at 09:07 am

Here's a site where you can answer a few simple questions and come up with a rough estimate of your life expectancy:

I'm sure it's not perfect, but it does give you a number you can plug in to those retirement calculators when asked to enter your life expectancy ... Probably a better number than just guessing, tho' my number from doing the game was the same number I had been guessing (90 years).

    I don't want to know. I have never eaten correctly (no fruit,no vegetables, no seafood) However, I have also never been sick.

    I would venture higher. Lots of family lived to 100+ and we both have grandmas/great-aunts without a health problem ever well into their late 80s. The rest of our fam died younger with genetic diseases we didn't inherit. Which is why retirement feels overwhelming to me. Assume we live to 100+?

    Ima - you'd probably do well. The no traffic accidents/smoking/drugs always weighs much more heavily as I myself do not eat well overall either - do not do veggies. Dh's grandma does not eat fruits/veggies and it is NOT slowing her down in the least. Wink Not excusing it, but it is just one factor of many.
