Majority of Babies will Live to 100

How will they accomplish this?

From a recent article in "US News & World Report" by Deborah Kotz :

"Today, centenarian birthdays are still special enough to be announced by the Today show's Willard Scott. But they may not be by the next generation."


"According to their analysis of data from more than 30 developed countries, death rates are dropping among people over 80. And three quarters of babies born in these nations over the past decade can expect to live to 75. The researchers also hypothesized that we can live longer by extending our working lives and shortening our work weeks—say, by making a four-day workweek the norm."


" has revealed that centenarians tend to share certain traits in how they eat, move about, and deal with stress—specific habits, like flossing and socializing with friends, that we can adopt to help slow aging."

It appears that science is slowing discovering what we are finding out from the super-centenarians we have been researching.

A special thanks to Elf for this article.
