What is the maximum age for humans?




        The maximum human lifespan is around 125years. However, some experts believe that this limit could be extended by somewhere between 10 and 15 years. So far, the oldest person whose age could be proved was a Frenchwoman who died in 1997 at 122 years of age. In 1933, The New York Times reported the death of a Chinese man who was allegedly 253years old, but this and similar reports of people living to such great ages are now considered unreliable. Over the couse of history, there has been no change in the maximum age, which is the same for all ethnic groups. What has increased since the end of the 19th century is the average life expectancy in industrialized conditions, this is now between about 79 and 82 years for both sexes (at birth).
