Y'all obviously have not lived and learned about life the less responsible way.  I have abused my family longevity average of 88, and dropped to a pathetic 81.9; virtual age of 39.1 (wish I felt as good as I did when I was 39).  More exercise and weight loss might save me - I'm off to walk the Riverwalk for lunch.

My virtual age is 55.9 (biological age 50), and my life expectancy is 70.1 (average 76). Well, I guess that's probably true or at least not unexpected, given that I work in education and that I have a family history of suicidal depression...

My virtual age is 36.5 (really I'm 31) and my life expectancy is 68.5. 

I guess diet and exercise aren't enough anymore!

I guess it's fairly relative - there's a bit of guesswork involved in the some of the answers, so who knows?

I just took the test again and, with similar answers, I scored a virtual age of 15.9 and life exp. of 84.1.  My real age is 26.

Just as a test of the system, I answered everything as "green" as I could (green is the color of the favorable answers, for those who haven't taken the test).  I went from my biological age of 26 to a "Virtual Age" of -9.6 with a life exp. of 109.6.

Does that mean I'm going to be conceived in 8.9 years?

I noticed that as soon as I selected Hispanic for my ethnicity, my life expectancy went down. LOL.

I was doing pretty good on the thing until the alcohol question came up. ;D In the end, my virtual age was about a year older than my actual age.

In my case, what raised my virtual age and decreased my life expectancy are the questions of stress and anxiety. It is really very dificult for me to choose anything that the test offers, because it varies... Today, I can say, "life is good," but yesterday it might have been "suicidal." :( I am a terrible neurotic, very unstable, easily swayed by various winds.

I was surprised there were no family history questions about cancer. I think I only scored so well because I have no family history of several of those diseases. Cancer gets us all first, I guess.
