Your Healthy Life Expectancy is 48.3 Years
Your Relative Healthy Life Expectancy is about 31.0% above Average
Your Unhealthy Life Expectancy is 2.7 Years
Your Life Expectancy is 51.0 Years
Your Cognitive Unhealthy Life Expectancy is 4.5 Years
Does this calculation take into account anticipated advances in medical technology? Or does it assume things will be as is?
It doesn’t even take into account your family history, which is a major factor.
And it uses BMI, so it isn’t even using current medical technology, let alone any anticipated advances.
