Calculate Your Life Expectancy

Three scientists from the University of Pennsylvania created a mortality calculator.

Answer some questions about your lifestyle, PMH and FMH, and the calculator gives you an estimate of how long you will live.

The calculator is based on "pure" statistics but you can still get an idea what you should change in your life to live healthier.

The three authors who made the program are Dean P. Foster, Lyle Ungar and Choong Tze Chua, they work at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania.

See the Forbes magazine list of The Worst Things You Can Do To Your Body as a slide show.
