Study data published in The Lancet. It specifically emphasizes that an increase in life expectancy will not lead to an increase in the period of decrepitude. People will stay fit for much longer.

During the study of statistics, researchers have determined that in 30 developed countries the number of people over 80 has more than doubled since 1950. And this applies to both men and women.

The head of the Danish Gerontological Research Center, Professor Kaare Christensen, who became the head of the study, claims that human life expectancy has been growing since 1840. And while this trend does not even think to slow down.

“For 165 years in a row, people's life expectancy has been growing, so far there are no restrictions on this,” says the professor. “Probably, when we come close to the limit that nature intended for us, we can talk about limiting this growth.”

In 1950, only 15-16% of women from developed countries had a chance to live to 80-90 years. In men, this number was 12%. In 2002, these rates rose to 37% for women and 25% for men. Scientists believe that a person will soon have four stages of life - childhood, adolescence, young adulthood and late adulthood. Moreover, there are no convincing arguments in favor of the fact that people from the group of late maturity will be less he althy than those from young maturity. After all, after 85, the strongest survive.
