Doctors may be able to warn patients if they are at risk of early death by analysing their brains, British scientists have discovered.

Those whose brains appeared older than their true age were more likely to die early and to be in worse physical and mental health, a study by Imperial College London found.

“In the long run it would be great if we could do this accurately enough so that we could do it at an individual level,” he said. “However, at the moment, it’s not sufficiently accurate to be used at that sort of individual level.

However, at the moment, it’s not sufficiently accurate to be used at that sort of individual level.

Another way for the person starting the "remaining economic life" thread to think about effective age.

Well maybe "effective age"... :)
