Just for fun, plug your data into a life expectancy calculator- you might be surprised by the number. https://www.blueprintincome.com/tools/life-expectancy-calcul...... Obviously, just a guestimate, but it might help you realize that you aren't destined to check out at 72. - SnootFool

That calculator was fun. I was surprised that it did not ask about the longevity of your parents. I have consistently heard that is a factor.

Also, the only specific chronic disease it asked about was diabetes, everything else about your health was captured in the overall health question. So all other things being equal being treated for high blood pressure or cancer would score the same.
