Microlives helps you to put all these risks into a chart, which makes them comparable. This chart will show you how these affect our lives, “how much life we are losing in average”.
Each Microlife equals to 30 minutes of your expected lifespan. For example smoking 2 cigarettes or drinking 2 beers or eating a portion of red meat costs you one Microlife. If you keep all these habits it stacks up. Smoking 2 cigarettes every day for a whole life statistically shortens it by almost 2 and a half year.
Of course, this is just a statistic and everyone is unique. The aim of the app is to help you to keep up with healthy lifestyle based on most recent studies and improve the quality of your life.
