A Blood Test Tells You If You're Going to Die in the Next 5 Years

Yes, death is inevitable — but just how predictable is it?

A technique developed by researchers in Finland and Estonia could pinpoint individuals with a high risk of dying within as few as five years by examining their blood.

Scientists screened more than 17,000 samples looking for biomarkers, or biological indicators of abnormalities, that were present in the blood of people who had died not long after their blood was drawn. The study, which was published in PLOS Medicine, used a cost-effective method of screening mass amounts of blood called NMR Spectroscopy.
