Scientists have found an unusual way to predict death

(ORDO NEWS) — An international team of specialists conducted a new study, during which a rather unusual method was established that can predict the death of a person in the next decade.

Scientists from different countries gathered together. Experts from the USA and Great Britain, Brazil, Australia and Finland took part in the study.

They made a statement that there is a way to find out about death in the next ten years. To do this, it is enough to stand on one leg and stand for at least 10 seconds without any support.

More than 1700 people took part in this study, whose age ranged from 51 to 75 years. At the very beginning of the experiment, all participants were asked to stand on one leg for ten seconds while trying to keep their hands straight in front of them. As a result, every fifth failed the task, although three attempts were given.

Over the next 12 years, all participants were monitored. 123 people died. At the same time, experts note that the causes of death were very different, but those people who could not balance normally on one leg died more often.

The experts emphasized that if a person cannot stand on one leg for some time without support, then in this case the risk of death in the next 10 years increases by at least 84%.

Additionally, several other factors were taken into account during the study. Experts took into account the gender and age of people, as well as the presence of a variety of chronic diseases.

With age, the sense of balance begins to gradually deteriorate, and after 50 years, a sharp drop occurs altogether. It is worth paying attention to the fact that the balance is affected not only by the coordination of a person, but also by his vision, speed of thinking, coordination.

At the same time, it is extremely rarely taken for some serious indicator of health. At the same time, after the study, experts began to believe that the balance test must be included in medical examinations, which are designed specifically for the elderly.
