Humans can live to age 130 and beyond, according to a new study published in the Royal Society Open Science journal. Researchers analyzed people 105 years old and older from the International Database on Longevity, which covers more than 1,100 such people from 13 countries. They found that your risk of death generally increases as you get older. Eventually, though, your risk of death levels out. Past age 110, your chance of dying in the next year is about 50-50. But even if you survive to age 110, your odds of living until 130 are still only about one in a million.
