Recently, a team of scientists at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands came up with a test that uses 14 biomarkers, which you get by analyzing a blood sample from an individual, to predict pretty accurately when you’re going to die.

It’s not like they can predict death within the next 24 hours, but for all-cause mortality, they have a more sophisticated way of predicting within the next 2 or 3 years whether you are highly likely to die.
