LONDON-  A blood test could tell you how long you have to live.

King’s college in London conducted a study in which blood cells were able to determine a person’s biological age. A person is assigned a biological age based on the current status of their health.

Researchers say blood samples reflect current health conditions and potential risks for disease.

People with better test results, and fewer health risks, were more likely to live longer and less lived likely to develop Alzheimer’s disease.
