What is the longest a human can live? At what age does everybody go, no matter what? Is there a limit to the human max age?

How long did people used to live for? Back in the 1500’s, records show that life expectancy in Europe was between 30 and 40 years old, and it stayed that way up to around 1800, according to evolutionary biologist Caleb Finch in his 2010 article published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. He also tells us that in ancient Greek and Roman times it was as short as 20 to 35 years.

Since the early 1800s, Finch writes that life expectancy at birth has doubled in a period of only 10 or so generations. But after 1800 things improved with better health care, sanitation, immunizations, access to cleaner water, and people also ate better.

Today many people live past 100 years old. But have we reached the limit and seen the oldest person we will ever see? That’s what we’ll be looking at in this episode of The Infographics Show: Is The Human Max Age Is 122?
