Long healthspans mean happy lives

Test-yourself-at-home medical kits

2nd August 2006

I read an interesting article on test-yourself-at-home medical kits a couple of weeks ago that died in very directly with the idea of improving your healthspan.

For a glimpse at the future of at-home testing, look to the baby boomers, Passiment said. That generation, whose oldest members are turning 60 this year, is anxious not to age the way their parents did and eager to avoid disease.

Some products discussed are familiar to everyone (like home pregnancy tests) but others are mostly unheard of (like the the fecal occult blood test, a screening test for colorectal cancer that has to be easier than a colonoscopy).
