  • How Long Will You Live?

    How many more years do you have left to live?  While there is no Ouija board to tell you the date of your demise, an online tool is now available that provides you with odds that you will die in the next six years.  It is the SITTING-RISING TEST, which assesses your ability to sit down on the floor and stand up again without holding onto anything.  Perfect score is 10. Few people will attain that score; 1 point is subtracted each time a hand or knee is used for support and a half-point for loss of balance.  A score of less than 8 doubles the risk of death within the next six years; a score of 3 or less increases death risk by 5 times over the same six-year period.  You can click here to take the test yourself.  [SITTING/BALANCE TEST]
