Wearing my seatbelt every time apparently reduces my biological age 2 years. I'm a 12 year old living in a 23 year old body.

Mostly a result of wearing my seatbelt, taking few drugs, and not having a family history of anything they cared about in the questionnaire.

48/36.8 - I don't smoke, drink, take risks, I exercise regularly, and my cholesterol is insanely low. How are you guys (Tom & Rdad) scoring so much lower?

It makes sense in prolonging life expectancy... but not biological age...

I call shenanigans!

Took the test as I sit here grinding out some work since I have ANOTHER long road trip this week, drinking a beer, stressing about my sick 2 year old, worrying about my fantasy football team, after another little tiff with my wife. . .



Why is it my fault everyone in my family either has cancer or heart disease???

Cycling done right (high speed in tight groups) is a risky activity. I gave myself a high score for that factor.

There were no questions asking about the level of obesity reached or digestive system manipulation.

I'm 21. Apparently, my real age is 8.6 and my life expectancy is 86.4. BTW, it's nice to know that I have a little over 23000 days to live.

biological age: 41
"real age": 17.3

The cycling worked both ways-- lots of exercise and reduced driving mileage, but also a risky behavior (you should have seen yesterday's racing...)

The tract manipulation is a nonissue, based off of my blood work

Coronary output fraction is superior

Lung Capacity is 5.32 liters

Blood O2 saturation never drops below 97%, even at sustained MaxHR, and my last stress test was exceptional;.

Cholesterol and sugars are textbook, all other blood components are normal and barring accident, I expect a long and healthy life
