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, Gazeta.ru reports.

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