I'll be 83 when I die. Drinking a lot knocked 4 years off of my life. I have 51 years to make something of myself.

It told me I'm going to die in 60 years.....when I'm 84. That's optimistic. I doubt I'll die that young.....especially if I quit smoking!

Most of you are in your 20's?..I'm guessing by the time you reach your 30's your consumption will decrease, and the life expectancy will increase.

Hmm, it said I would live to 90, but I doubt it. It didn't ask about other health issues. For example, I have barely controlled asthma as well as other health issues that take their toll.

It'd be interesting to see results from people who are already in their 80s and 90s.

Give Valerian root tea a try.

93, which is ridiculous since most type 1 diabetics don't make 50.

Its an American company. Hence why they ask about heart disease and hypertension and nothing else regarding health history.

According to the calculator I'm going to live to 99. If I die sooner I will sue the insurance company who provided the calculator

The calculator tells me I'm going to live to be 100! I'm not convinced.

It says I'll make it to 90. I find that hard to believe. None of the women in my family have lived past 72.

I'm going to die!!! I only have 50 more years to live!!!!1!!!!!111!!!!!

There are so many things they left out of this that I don't even know where to begin. For starters, health history, as others have mentioned. And the only choices for blood pressure are "don't know", "normal", or "high". What happened to "low"?

And I don't like the dietary question, either. Amount of meat, amount of fruits and veggies, and amount of processed foods should be 3 different questions. Someone might have good dietary habits in one regard and lousy habits in another, such as a vegetarian who eats too many frozen veggie burgers, because he's too lazy to really cook.

Said 85, it went down to 77 when i put yes to drugs for recreational use, but they didn't specify so i think they included hard drugs which i don't do so 85 it is, but i hope not lol.

Yeah you lost a lot for using any kinds of drugs recreationally which was kind of dumb.

98 must be the max age? Cause I basically do everything right...

These seem pretty high to me overall, maybe because almost all my grandparents died before they were 80, maybe half before they were 70.
