No one likes spoiler alerts, let’s be real.

A team of scientists in Germany just created a new blood test that is incredibly accurate at predicting when someone’s going to die.

The test analyzes a person’s blood, looks for risk signs, and predicts whether the person is going to die in the next five to 10 years. Here’s the scary part: it’s 80% ACCURATE. This means that if it tells you you’ve got less than a decade left, it’s probably right.

“We see this as a foundation, we do not see this test as an endpoint.” That’s the statement from the scientist team.

So sooner than we may be ready for, there could be a blood test that will be able to tell you how much longer you have to live.
