Simple everyday tasks such as getting out of chair and standing on one leg can be used to predict which middle aged people are at risk of an early death, a study has found.

The new study found that men who could stand up from a chair and sit down again less than 23 times in a minute were twice as likely to die in the following 13 years than those who could 37 or more.

Among women those who could stand up and sit down again less than 22 times in a minute were twice as likely to die in that time than those who could do the test 35 times or more.

Those unable to do the test at all were almost seven times more likely to die.

In the standing on one leg with eyes closed test, men and women able to hold the position for less than two seconds were three times more likely to die than those who could hold it for ten seconds or more.

Those people unable to do the test at all were around 12 times more likely to die in the following 13 years.

Standing on one leg wasn't much use for the Norwegian Blue parrot. Had a most untimely death......

With their eyes shut - don't forget that bit. I must admit to a bit of mischief when I posted this on GLP, picturing the nutty Americans with their tinfoil hats trying not to fall over.. ::roglol::
