Scientists from the University of Tilburg (the Netherlands) dispelled the myth of the immortality of man and called the limit of life expectancy.

Their study was based on a statistical analysis of the deaths of 75,000 Dutch people who died in the last 30 years.

According to scientists, men can live up to 114.1 years, and women – up to 115.7 years. At the same time, they noted that the studies received are approximate – there were cases when a person lived to be 120 years old, reports.

The record holder for life expectancy is the Frenchwoman Zhanna Kalman, who died in 1997. She lived 122 years and 164 days.
