Breaking the Longevity Record: Humans May Live Past 122, Study Says

Study says that humans will break the record for longevity and live past 122.

This plateau is known as \”mortality compress\” — where the age at which people die remains relatively constant. This has been a constant phenomenon among people born before 1900. According to the study \”mortality delay\” — where the maximum age of death is increasing — seems to be more prevalent among those born between 1910 to 1950. The oldest people who were born between 1910 and 1950 have a good chance of living beyond 120.

McCarthy states in a news release that \”as these cohorts reach advanced ages over the next decades, longevity records could increase significantly.\” Our results confirm previous work that suggests, if there’s a limit to human life expectancy, we haven’t reached it yet.
