The BBC recently posted a story about a recent study analyzing statistics about life expectancy that indicates that the upper limit of the human life span might be around 115 even given ongoing improvements in health care, etc. In part it states:
“The team in New York analysed data from the Human Mortality Database and the deaths of super-centenarians (those over 110) in France, Japan, UK and US.
“The data showed increases in life expectancy were slowing in centenarians and that the maximum age of death had plateaued for at least two decades.
“Prof Jan Vijg, one of the researchers from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, told the BBC News website: “In people over 105 we make very little progress, that tells you we are most likely approaching the limit to human life.
‘For the first time in history we’ve been able to see this, it looks like the maximum life span – this ceiling, this barrier – is about 115.'”
