We’re all going to die. You could be struck by a disease or by a speeding bus. Lifestyle choices, along with environmental factors, can lead to an early death. (Seriously, you won’t believe these terrible diseases you could have without knowing it.) But we can do many things to buy ourselves more time. And you can look for several signs to gauge whether the reaper is on your trail. If the following signs apply to you, death may come knocking sooner than you’d like.
1. Broken Bones
If you’ve broken your arm, you don’t necessarily need to worry. But if you’re breaking bones consistently after a certain age (say, your mid-40s) that can be a red flag. Specifically, it can be a sign your bone health is decreasing and you’re getting physically weaker. This can cascade into other issues like arthritis and limited mobility, which can impact your overall state of health.
