Can This “Vision Marker” Measure Your Death Risk?
We all want to live our longest – and healthiest – lives possible.
After all, the longer we live the more time we get to spend with the grandkids, take that trip of a lifetime, or take up that hobby you’ve always wanted to try.
And if you’re eating healthy and staying active, you’re well on your way to taking control of a healthy, long life.
But what if I told you that some jaw-dropping new research has found that a “vision marker” could actually measure your DEATH risk?
I know it sounds impossible, but today I’m here to share all the stunning details… including what you can do to protect your longevity.
We’ve all heard the old adage that your eyes are the “windows to your soul.”
But it turns out that your eyes could also reveal how long you will live!
According to a study recently published in the British Journal of Ophthalmology, researchers have discovered a link between the biological age of your retinas and your risk of death.
The study found that the membrane at the back of your eye contains light sensitive cells that begin deteriorating during middle age. And according to the study, people whose retinas were “older” than their actual age were more likely to die over the next decade.
In fact, researchers found that just a small, one-year increase in the age gap in the biological age of your retinas versus your actual age could lead to a 2-3% rise in the risk of death from any cause or a specific cause!

This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
This Food Could Be Growing Deadly Tumors
Are we literally FEEDING cancer cells by putting this one food on our dinner plates?
This is important. THIS one food could be growing cancer cells.
And here’s where it gets interesting… as soon as we STOP eating it, the opposite happens: cancer cells STARVE to death — and die out by the thousands.
Skeptical? See the evidence here.
Now, I realize this all sound morbid… but there is a silver lining to these findings.
First, this sheds light on the well-documented fact that your eyes – specifically your retina – is a reliable indicator of the overall health of your body’s circulatory system and brain.
Second, this means that regular testing and exams of your retina may even be used to help compliment tests and exams done on your heart and brain.
In fact, study authors believe this latest finding about testing the age of your retinas could lead to a routine screening tool for a host of life-threatening illnesses – including Alzheimer’s disease.
More work (and research) continues to be done on this eye test and how it relates to your overall longevity.
But in the meantime, it serves as a great reminder to not skimp on regular, routine eye exams as part of your overall wellness.
Staying on top of your eye health can identify any potential red-flags not only for your vision – but for other ailments as well… including steps you may need to take.
So, be sure to keep seeing your eye doctor as part of the aging process.
