I'm giving a free talk based on my book 'Secrets of the Centenarians' at Shoe Lane Library, London EC4 at 1300 on April 3.
I'll be examining:
Why are there 90 times as many centenarians as there were 100 years ago?
Why do women centenarians outnumber men by about 5 to 1?
What determines who will make it to 100 and who will fall by the wayside?
Can we go on expanding human lifespan or have we reached our limit?
I'll also be telling the stories of the oldest people who have ever lived and the famous people who lived to 100 – the celebrity centenarians.
