Once upon a time, living to a ripe old age was merely a possibility — if you were lucky. In truth, most of us didn’t make it much beyond our reproductive years; as late as the 1890s, the average life expectancy in the US, for example, was just around 45. But major advances in medicine and public health have expanded that to an average age of 78 (and that includes the recent one-year drop due to COVID). The number of centenarians worldwide is predicted to climb to 3.7 million by 2050.
