Researcher’s claims of 150-year-old people soon unlikely, says Robert Binstock

Scientist believes someone alive today will live to be 150 years old

WEWS: British researcher Aubrey de Grey believes there’s a person alive today who will live to 150, and that within 20 years someone will be born who will live to be 1,000. Robert Binstock, professor of aging, said the probability of someone living to be 150 is very low. “(de Grey) bases it on theories, not on any laboratory work. He hasn’t worked with human or animal models on biology of aging that would suggest this,” he said.
