No way....between genetics, lifestyle and just daily living, can cause death at any time, any age. Whom ever thought up this idea, most likely either works for a insurance company or a drug company...imo
I tend to agree having a Critical Illness Myself and Battling Insurance companies throughout. Its just a way for Insurance Companies to open the door to deny Coverage's!
I would say life ins. companies being that the longer you live the more they benefit and knowing when you will die wouldhelp them adjust their premiums.My opinion is that this info should never ever be accessable to insurance companies,way to much room for abuse.
THATS BECAUSE THEY KNOW THEIR GOING TO GET THEM ON ALL THOSE PRESCRIPTONS AND THEY CAN GUESS HOW LONG IT WILL TAKE TO KILL YOU.
laughing... but you are probably in part right.
I want people i know to get this test.If they say oh man i got the test and i got 2 years to live i will be getting life insurance policies on them.
you got that right :)
Well isn't this a bit of cheery news! Do we have to pay our taxes first?
Some comments-- It's amazing how the Obama haters immediately start spewing their venom instead of looking at the actual study. It's also amazing how this AOL article looks like it was pieced together from a bunch of sources (WCFT, WNYW, WZTV)...only Fox News was missing. For those who want to see the original study, try going to this link:www.plosmedicine.org/articleinfo%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pmed.1001606What you'll see is that they studied people from ages 18-103, many smokers, many overweight, some with diabetes and cancer....and only 684 people died out of 17,000 studied in a five year period. Everyone should just calm down and relax.
TIME FLY'S ! DEATH IS CERTAIN !
I would be willing to find out what I could improve on to upgrade my quality of life.
If these test prove to be accurate they could really mess up the whole life insurance world.
Story to the moral is that you'll never get out of this world alive!!
bet insurance company dont like this
Bet they do .....opps, forgot, they can't charge based on risk assessment anymore. Now, if we can only mandate car ins. companies to charge my teenage son the same as me.
