Humans will NEVER live past 125 years: The body cannot naturally pass beyond a certain life expectancy
The natural limit to human life is no more than 125 years, a study has found.
Despite ever more humans living for longer each year – the final cut-off point has remained stubbornly the same.
No human has lived longer than 122 – the age reached by a Frenchwoman, Jeanne Calment, in 1997.
Researchers believe that this is because there is an age limit beyond which humans just cannot pass naturally.
Researchers led by Jan Vijg of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York investigated whether the rise in human lifespans meant the 122 lifespan was a maximum.
