Some bad news for those who want to live forever (you won’t)

Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment lived to the age of 122 eating pounds of chocolate a week, riding a bicycle until age 100 and smoking until a few years before her death.

Tempting as it may be to extrapolate lessons from Calment’s lifestyle — particularly the chocolate part — a new paper concludes that most humans will, at most, live to 115, with very small odds of living to 125 or older. (Just don’t tell Peter Thiel.)

The results were “compelling,” the authors said, strongly suggesting that the “human lifespan has a natural limit.”

Life expectancy has been increasing over the last several decades, and some have even argued that there is no limit to how long humans could live, especially given modern advances in health and technology.
