Do you think it would be common for humans to live up to 100 years and beyond in the future?
Adam in the Bible lived 960 years. 100 is a piece of cake!
I wouldn't say it would be common, due to the variety of 'sinful' food around, where obesity is the biggest issue amongst the youth. Lifespan increase, yes, more due to the advancement of medication, but I think the body can only take so much 'beating', even the best medication can only restrain the deterioration, unless of course, there is a discovery of 'restoration' of cells to its original state, which maybe stem cells can do the job, if perfected.

The aging process becomes a lot more rapid from the age of 45 upwards because our bodies are quickly giving up and settling up because we were 'designed' to only live through youth and young adulthood and we are just fighting against the course of nature.
