    I will admit to lightly reading the article as I didn't look at the tables, etc. I am not sure how much value this data might have in a real world application. I think that there are enough markers now which indicate current and future health trajectory for at least some chronic diseases like cardiovascular disease, hypertension and diabetes, but cancer as an example would be tough to predict.
