Humans Hit Their Longevity Limit, Research
The scientists say that despite life expectancy has been increasing during the last 100 years, it's unlikely it will continue to rise any more than what it is right now. It is also extremely unlikely that any human is able to live for more than 125 years. Geneticist Jan Vijg from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, and his team executed this research. The researchers have analyzed aging trends in the USA, UK, France and Japan.
Jan Vijg says: “While there is no reason to think that the ongoing increase in maximum lifespan will end soon, the data strongly suggests that it's already been attained and that this happened in the 1990s."
