Some suggest that we have a genetically programmed life span, with
varying ranges of 5-10 years due to lifestyle.
Exercise, nutrition, safety, stress mgmt add 10 years max. The opposite
reduces the programmed longevity of cellular reproduction.
Certain immortalists believe that with advanced research in genetics, the
programming can be altered to perpetuate cell division instead of the
typical 70-80 limitations.
Even w/o genetic manipulation, lifespans have doubled since 1850, having
gone from 45 @1900 to 78 now. (#'s approximate)
Lifespans are increasing at the rate of one year every 2.2 years.
