How to Live to 100


Research from Denmark shows that life expectancy is increasing steadily and there is a good possibility that by controlling life factors, most everyone can live to be 100. Of course, living in a high income, first world country is the first factor. The Danish experts report that since the 20th century, people in developed countries are living about three decades longer than in the past.

Check out the list (click on it for a better read) to see what factors you can control.

Tip: Don't eat the nuts if you have an allergy. That would definitely lower your chances! And having a baby "later in life" does not mean with IVF or infertility drugs. And a "little" wine doesn't mean a bottle a day.

Question: are there many of us who actually WANT to live to 100?

I concur. I am an octogenarian, healthy and happy, but 100 years is too long.

Interesting timing I know someone that is turning 100 next Sat., who was born in Russia, but lived in Germany and then US for 50 or more years.

I was surprised that it didn't mention exercise. Also I noticed the other countries it rated as having the most centenarians are two that have the highest ranking health care by the WHO. Everyone alway thinks of France with the wine and Japan with green tea.

I fully expect to make it to 100; it runs in the family (women only, though). As a woman who had her only child at 42, I can say that she is my motivation to live a long, healthy life, because I want to be there for her as long as I possibly can. But long life expectancy also motivates me to take care of my finances!
