“Is The Next Wave Of Life Expectancy Gains On The Horizon?”

Is The Next Wave Of Life Expectancy Gains On The Horizon?,” by Swiss Re, Advisor Magazine

“Gains in human longevity have tapered off over the last decade but the next wave of improvements is on its way, says Swiss Re’s latest report, The future of life expectancy: Forecasting long-term mortality improvement trends for insurance. Advances in cancer diagnosis and treatment are the most likely areas to improve global longevity, according to the report. Future improvements will need to be supported by addressing older-age health issues such as Alzheimer’s, lifestyle factors and access to healthcare.”

LTC Comment, Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform:

You win some (cancer treatment) and you lose some (more age-based chronic illness). But not to worry. AI will fix that and everything else … if it doesn’t kill us all first.
