    I may be older than you and I smoked from age 16 to 40.

    You are older and I smoked for 55 years. Is the survey valid?

    I have no way of knowing whether or not the survey is valid.  It came out of research done in the UK, that's all I know.

    I won’t be 55 for another 25 years but I took it anyway.  This is what my answer would be if I were 55 but none of my other chances were changed:

    Excellent.  Having said that, there age is also a factor.  I hope it stays that way for you. :)

    I had my husband take this even though he’s not 55 yet either.  If he were 55 but answered all of the other questions the same way, he gets 0% of getting dementia.

    How does that happen?  His answers were way unhealthier than mine!

    I was surprised at mine - 10% - considering I'm 78, overweight, don't eat as well as I should and don't exercise.

    Had to say I was 55...I am 49. 

    It said 0%.  But did say I need to eat better and lose weight. And should be more involved in the community.

    What does it mean if you couldn't figure out how to take the quiz?
