There seems to be no end to news stories about people 100 and over reporting their secrets to longevity. Here is a sample from today’s news:
:· Being kind to people and eating healthy food (age 102)
· Exercise (age 100)
)· Taking one day at a time (age 106)
A table of 86 validated supercentenarians – living people 110 years or more older (78 females, 8 males) – is maintained by a Gerontology Research Group. I conjecture that in advanced countries the human epigenome is continuing to evolve to support greater general longevity. Yet, there still seems to be an absolute human lifespan limit of 123 years and breaking through that will require powerful new anti-aging interventions. So, in addition to daily exercise, eating good food, being kind to people and taking one day at a time, we have a lot of hard research still to do.
