Blood tests by all accounts are pretty standard fare for most people. This blood test is anything but standard though and could be a significant breakthrough in modern science. People have been trying to figure out a way to predict their death for as long as anybody can remember, and this blood test may very well do that.

Johannes Kettunen from the University of Helsinki helped develop the test and it examines similarities between tests that have seen some people die earlier than others. The test won't be able to tell if you'll get hit by a car or drown, but if it's from natural causes, then the test will be able to help.

More studies are underway but if it turns out to be accurate it can lead to many healthy lifestyles alterations.
