How long will people live in the future?

A month ago, WHO published: "Today most people can expect to live into their sixties and beyond.

There is no typical older person. Some 80-year-olds have physical and mental capacities similar to many 30-year-olds.
There is no typical older person.

Every country in the world is experiencing growth in both the size and the proportion of older persons in the population.

By 2030, 1 in 6 people in the world will be aged 60 years or over.

By 2050, the world's population of 60 years and older will 2.1 billion. The number of persons aged 80 years or older is expected to triple between 2020 and 2050 to reach 426 million.

While this shift in the distribution of a country's population towards older ages – known as population ageing – started in high-income countries (for example in Japan 30% of the population is already over 60 years old), it is now low- and middle-income countries that are experiencing the greatest change.

By 2050, two-thirds of the world's population over 60 years will live in low- and middle-income countries."

The attractiveness of a longer life depends on its quality, so it is crucial to work on that. Live as a healthy lifestyle as possible, exercise regularly, choose proper healthy food instead of fast food, get enough sleep and try with dietary supplements such as antioxidants, resveratrol, and NMN.

With this simple steps you can increase the longevity gene and thus enjoy all your body's capabilities for longer.
