Research conducted in The Netherlands has found that the maximum ceiling life span for a female is 115.7 years. For men, it is slightly lower at 114.1 years but even so, that's a long time.
Statisticians from Tilburg and Rotterdam's Erasmus University investigated 75,000 Dutch deaths in the last 30 years and reached this result. Professor John Einmahl, one of the three researchers, told Medical Express:
Average lifespans have increased, but the elderly among us have not aged in 30 years. Some form of wall exists here. Naturally, life expectancy has risen. However, the maximum ceiling remains."
Please note that lifespan is used to determine how long a person can live if they take care of themselves. A comparable lifespan bracket was found in an American study.
They found that a person's lifetime peaks in their nineties and rarely exceeds 115. Frenchwoman Jeanne Louise Calment, who lived 122 years, defies these numbers.
The world's oldest individual was born in 1875 and died in 1997. Her accomplishment may never be matched, but Einmahl hopes to publish his work in the next month, which may disclose the key to a longer life.
Anyway, it's nice to know Oasis lied about "you and I are gonna live forever..."
