darn. looks like the curve is levelling off. Any ideas why?

You're right. The article doesn't mention the Bible as the source of the faith and spirituality of those surveyed. I suspect that's the case; however, I could be wrong.

May be researchers should be more specific on the origin of centenarians belief systems in the future. What you believe and how you live your life according to those beliefs might prove to be the most dominant or determining factor in longevity.

I wonder how many atheists have made it past 100? If the atheist mode of thinking is superior, shouldn't it eventually show up in longevity research?



How many atheists were there 100 years ago? Well, not as many as today, I can tell you that. Most people were religious back then. Not to mention that atheisms validity has nothing to do with how old the people who believe in it live to. I agree with the other guy; believing in a god must be very comforting indeed.

I'm sure there are alot more supercentenarians out there we are not aware of because they choose not to be made aware of. I know so many people who have great grandparents approaching 100 and a couple who are over this age.

as was written here before, average age of supercentenarians still seems to be stagnating :| it can't get much higher with such rapid decline in number of cases with each following year.

currently we officially have

114 y olds: 4
113 y olds: 9
112 y olds: 12
111 y olds: 25
110 y olds: 26
+ some cases not validated yet

it was proportionally almost the same for years with some occasional cases of 115 or 116 years old; + 90% of all centenarians are women. and no 122+ in sight.

there seems to be rapid decline between 111 and 112 and its not much better in following age levels

i agree with what brokenportal wrote almost 2 years ago

apparently there is a barrier [imo cr and healthy living is unlikely to help much with breaking it as many of the centenarians were practically living such lifestyle for numerous decades and they have probably longevity genes] and it will require much more poverful supplements or biotech/genetic/nanotechnology intervention to get more people to 110 and beyond..

otherwise progress will likely be slow. it can take centuries of human evolution and many generation of people to move maximum age limits couple of years up.

But today, we have the best chance in history of mankind to make radical life extension happen within decades

Nonesense - as *evereybody* knows we will all die as ususal, maybe not on average at 79 as current generations, but 85 for the today younger ones. There will be no biomedical progress in the next 50 years. May the allmighty god be mercyful to our souls. Do you hear me god? Be mercyful to us to give us indefinite lifespan in your heavenly kingdom! Ignore those mislead people, trying to depopulate the heavens! :~



;) Suggest not to put too much weight into my comment, just trolling around a bit, trying to shock the community.

I didn't say that. ;) We just need to see some real paradigm shift in medicine as R.Kurzweil is talking about . in this century we can't expect to add decades of life expectancy in developed world just by further lowering of infant mortality rates, making healthcare or food available to more people and dumping billions of dollars to pharmaceutical companies for drugs treating symptoms but actually not curing anything...

if nothing changes its unlikely there will be more than 1000 supencentenarians in 50 years..

I have added the data for Year 2009 on the graph of Average Age of 100 Validated Oldest Living People, Females, and Males.
This graph is in the 'Supercentenarians' section of http://www.grg.org/

Ex-oldest in the world, 114 yo woman from Japan, has died.
Now the oldest living is a 114 yo woman from Guadeloupe.

Seems to be a statistically relevant leveling off of the curve. I suppose we won't see another acceleration in chronological years-lived until some better regenerative medicine/biotech arrives.

Indeed, that would be shocking.

Agreed. Most of these super centurions are women and very small. (short) They are not in very good shape (health) either. Most are in rest homes. Given the present population of the world, what are the chances any of us will live over 110? It seems the real advances are longevity in middle age. I have noticed people seem to be doing well up until about 50 years of age. After that things slowly go to hell. Accidents, death by government and environmental disease kill off a high percentage not just old age.Posted Image

Ok, I only asked because that line sounded like there are death squads hunting for random people in the streets of the western world.

Is there anywhere to find out the number of living centenarians? 100 would be what i would call extremely impressive, yet normal while 110+ seems to be getting into the realm of the freaks(and i mean that as a compliment ha). This is just a quick armchair judgement but even though the longevity freaks are leveling off, i would still expect the number 100 year olds to grow and grow.

No, because people have more pressing things to do than show interest in human longevity.
