Living to 100 - my online talk TOMORROW!
Looking forward to talking online to the U3A in London at 1030 tomorrow about living to 100 - what's it like and which of us will survive to find out, based on my book 'Secrets of the Centenarians' (Reaktion).
Here's how the organisers have described the talk:
What is it like to live for a century and which of us will survive to find out? John Withington discusses why there are 90 times as many centenarians as there were 100 years ago. Why women outnumber men by about 5 to 1. What determines who will make it to 100 and who will fall by the wayside. And can we go on expanding human lifespan or have we reached our limit?
