Ask A Genius 227 – Longevity Escape Velocity, Almost

Scott Douglas Jacobsen & Rick Rosner

July 13, 2017

[Beginning of recorded material]

Rick Rosner: There are certainly people alive today who will live to 120.  And, probably alive today who will live to 106, but that won’t be happening for another hundred years at least because it just takes time for people to live that long.  So, we can look a little bit at what extended life-spans will look like, because it will take time for them to roll out.

My wife and I have just been helping my mother-in-law move into a senior living community.  She was born 1933 as was my mom.  And, they’ve certainly enjoyed the benefits of you know better health care and better knowing what to eat and to exercise, stuff that their parents didn’t have.  So, they’re pushing their mid-80’s and likely will live into their 90’s.
