UPI Poll: To reach 100, manage your health

The legitimate potential for life extension apparently has seeped into the public consciousness.  Twenty percent of Americans think they are going to live into their 90s, according to a recent Zogby/UPI poll, even though the average American lives about 77 years.

The poll also found about 40 percent of Americans think they will live into their 80s, and more than 5 percent believe they will live past the century mark.

Developments in science, as well as new drugs, may also be leading younger adults to increase their expectations of longevity, although there has been no actual increase in healthiness, yet.
