One study found that people can likely live to be up to 130 years old if health care and living standards improve. Researchers in the journal Royal Society Open Science found that the chances of surviving each additional year are 50-50 years old from the age of 108. However, with improved living conditions, one could reach the age of 130 before 2100, the study says.
âThere is strong evidence of an upper limit on human life expectancy of around 130 years. This event has a probability of less than one in a million and is very unlikely to happen anytime soon, although the increasing number of supercenturies makes it possible. “The maximum reported death age will increase to 130 years in the current century,” added the Researchers added.
The results of the study show that human life expectancy is unlimited. The conclusions are in line with similar statistical analyzes performed on data sets from older people.
During the initial analysis, the team analyzed the International Database on Longevity, which includes more than 1,100 Supercentenarians from 13 countries. The researchers later analyzed the data from Italy on each person who was at least 105 years old between January 2009 and December 2015.
They concluded that if more people reached supercentenarian status, more people would reach 130, increasing the chances of one becoming one in a million.
Currently the oldest person on record is the Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 at the confirmed age of 122. Calment’s real age has been the subject of some controversy with allegations of possible fraud, but in 2019 several experts said a review of the evidence confirmed their age.
The oldest recorded living person in the world is the Japanese Kane Tanaka, a comparatively juvenile 118.
