The raw number of centenarians in America is increasing. Fast. In fact, they are one of the fastest-growing demographic groups in the country. Currently, there are about 70,000 Americans who have reached the elusive 100 mark, but that number is expected to rise to about 600,000 by 2050, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
What is it that keeps their bodies humming along decades longer than average? In recent years, results from studies of centenarians have begun to offer answers, and it looks increasingly like there’s no simple cause that confers extreme longevity—be it genetics, lifestyle, or personality—and no (at least at this point) quick fix or pill that’s guaranteed to get you to 100.
We “wrote the book” on achieving the vaunted centenarian status!
