Scientists at the Stanford University (USA) found that each new generation lives on average three years longer than the previous one. According to experts, this trend will continue until the maximum possible lifespan. About it reported in a press release on MedicalXpress.
The researchers analyzed information on dates of birth and death of people over 65 years of age, who lived from 1960 to 2010. They found that the average age of death every 25 years increased by three years, i.e. people today will live about six years longer than their grandparents. This trend has remained stable over the past 50 years, although it was observed a small deviation caused by the development of medicine.
According to scientists, the results showed that there are some specific factors that contribute to longevity in people over 65 years. Those who have lived to this age, had to experience the influence of many circumstances which reduce life expectancy and increase it.
