    Endless Life

    There’s No Limit to Longevity

    This article just published in Scientific American, is regarding a tight data set of ultra-aged people in Italy—those over 100. There are now 500,000 people worldwide over 100, and the number is expected to soon double. Researchers introduced the theory that there may be an age plateau that people reach in their 90s, and that there may not actually be an age at which people can no longer live.

    This is, of course, quite controversial, not only from a biological standpoint, but from a cultural one as well. Since the beginning of time humans have been searching for some form of eternal life, and any glimmer of validation of that possibility is newsworthy. What is most definitely true is that the amount of people living into extreme advanced age is growing dramatically. The Queen of England has reduced the sending of birthday cards to all the UK centenarians because the group became too large. The key question in all this longevity is: what is the quality of extended life? And if that can become something more along the lines of a 60-year-old, then it really will be a game changer.

    This topic is one of the most controversial we write about, and would love to hear all your thoughts on this. Let’s discuss in the comments section on the site.
