Drew was shocked to learn that he is only expected to live until just 68.
With three grandparents living longer than 85 years of age, Drew was shocked to learn that, according to a life expectancy calculator, he is only expected to live until just 68. Is this accurate?
Based on factual information about life expectancy, the AMP life expectancy calculator takes into account your family history, activity and diet, habits, education and general attitude to life when estimating your life expectancy.
I was surprised, but not shocked, to learn that my expected age of death was 68. These calculators simply crunch the numbers based on what has been shown in studies to impact the age at which you’ll die. The response given by these calculators should be taken with a pinch of salt. After all, if I input the same lifestyle details, but show my current age as 68, I am told I will live a further 20 years!
Would you pay close attention to a life expectancy calculator? If you’ve used one, were you shocked by your predicted end of life age?
