Researchers at the University of Edinburgh in Scotland have developed a DNA test that can determine if a man can live longer or less than the average life expectancy.
According to the British newspaper Daily Mirror, the scientists examined samples of the genetic information of more than 500 thousand participants and identified 12 areas of the genome that have a significant impact on the life expectancy of people. Developed test analyzes these areas.
“If you take 100 people at birth and divided them into 10 groups, first in terms of life expectancy, the group on average live five years longer than the last,” said Professor Peter Joshi.
Experts believe that in the near future test on life expectancy will be 150 pounds.
