The weaker sex? Science that shows women are stronger than men

 

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/jun/11/the-weaker-sex-science-that-shows-women-are-stronger-than-men

 

According to a tally maintained by the global Gerontology Research Group, today, 43 people around the world are known to be living past the age of 110. Of these supercentenarians, 42 are women. Interviews with the world’s current oldest person, 117-year-old Violet Brown, who lives in Jamaica, reveal she enjoys eating fish and mutton. She once worked as a plantation worker. Her lifestyle betrays few clues as to how she has lived so long. But one factor we know has helped is being a woman.

The rise of the supercentenarians: five ways to live to 120

 

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/health-fitness/body/rise-supercentenarians-five-ways-live-120/

 

Fancy living to the age of 120? Increasingly, it’s a question of when, rather than if.

 

The world’s leading gerontologists have long been searching for the most effective ways to hold back the years. But last month, at an international symposium on longevity held in Geneva, Switzerland – a country with the world’s second highest life expectancy (82.9 years compared to the average of 70.4) – new research showed how it might soon be possible to slow down the biological, or “inner”, ageing process. According to scientists, such breakthroughs may enable us to far exceed current life expectancies.
