Living to 125 and beyond: Scientists dispute there’s a limit to our lifespans

( CNN) Don’t mess with our collective dreamings of afterlife. A tumult of brand-new research energetically opposes a study from last year that dared to suggest there might be a ceiling to the human lifespan.

In one new newspaper, Dutch scientists predict that, by 2070, our lifespan may increase to 125 years while beyond that, the sky is a possibility the limit. Their analysis was written Wednesday in the journal Nature.

The debate over his original article, produced last-place October in Nature and widely reported by CNN and other media outlets, made Jan Vijg, major author, by surprise.
