Show Notes

An article in Wired recently had the title “The Quest For Longevity is Already Over”.

We’re not so sure, for a number of reasons.

Jean-Marie Robine is a proclaimed longevity researcher, responsible for validating Jeanne Calment’s extraordinary 122 years and 164 days.

On episode 304 we discussed the reasons why we don’t think Jeanne Calment actually lived that long.

And on this occasion, we also don’t agree with Robine’s methods in focusing purely on super centenarians as a data point for assessing any “upper limits” in human lifespan.
