How long can we live? Including the story of a remarkable woman Jeanne Calmet, who lived to the age of 122, making her the oldest person who ever lived (and she spent her days rollerskating, hunting and painting!), this article delves into what is the limit of the human life span, delving into global statistics and expert opinions on whether a limit exists.
Earlier this month, the New York Times Magazine‘s health issue put longevity into focus. From a road map to whether we can live to 200, an exploration on how Black lives are shorter in Chicago, and an intriguing look at how the human life span has doubled the 100-year span of 1920 to 2020 (it involves science, yes, but also activism), add these insightful long reads to your must-reads.
