Experts claim that humans could live to be 180 years old by the end of this century.

According to data analyzed by statisticians in Canada, the human lifespan extreme limit could reach 180 years old, while the current record is 122 years old.

According to scientists, humans may live to be 180 years old by the year 2100.

According to Léo Belzile, an assistant professor at HEC Montreal in Canada, the world record for the oldest person to live could be broken by the end of the century.

The current record is held by Jeanne Calment, a Frenchwoman who lived to be 122 years old before dying in 1997, and over a dozen people have been verified to be over 110 years old.

According to the Daily Mail, Professor Belzile has warned that some data does not suggest a human lifespan upper limit, and that the “human lifespan lies well beyond any individual lifetime yet observed or that could be observed in the absence of major medical advances.”

More people pushing the current limits of lifespan, he warned, will have massive societal ramifications, such as a significant increase in medical bills as people suffer from illnesses caused by extreme old age.

Similarly, social care, pensions, and other social security programs could be in serious jeopardy as more people than ever rely on them while fewer taxpayers contribute.

“You’re going to have incredible medical bills,” Eileen Crimmins, a life expectancy expert at the University of Southern California, told The New York Times.

“If you’re going to have to make major interventions to keep them alive and healthy, replacing all of their knees, hips, corneas, and heart valves is going to be a huge expense.”

“It’s like keeping an old car running; we’ll probably be able to do it.”

But it’ll die eventually.”

According to the International Database on Longevity, the risk of dying increases steadily from the age of 50, slows at the age of 80, and may even level off by the age of 110, with the likelihood of dying in the next year reaching 50%.

“Nobody has lived beyond 122,” Professor Crimmins added.

Okay, fine, what’s the big deal about someone living to 130?
