Lose your sense of smell and five years later you could be dead, says study.
According to the study, Losing your sense of smell could indicate that you’ll be dead in five years. Inability to sense odors “doesn’t directly cause death, but it’s a harbinger, an early warning that something has gone badly wrong.
It’s unclear how sense of smell is related to mortality. The study did not examine the causes of death of volunteers who passed away. Indeed, it was stronger predictor than emphysema, cancer, heart attack, stroke, diabetes or congestive heart failure.
