Study Says Humans Life Expectancy Limit At 115 Years Old

A new study reported in the scientific journal, Nature, says the longest a human can live is 115.
Dr. Jan Vijg of the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and his colleagues came up with 115 by analyzing years of demographic data from the Human Mortality Database and the International Database on Longevity.

During an interview with NPR, Dr. Jan Vijg said "We cannot break through that ceiling. The take-home message essentially is this whole ever-increasing life expectancy of humans cannot go on."
The report says the age of the world's oldest person hasn't increased since the 1990's and the likelihood of survival declines after the age of 100.
