Life expectancy is on the Up Infographic
Tuesday, 09 September 2014 07:21

Global life expectancy has increased steadily over the past 50 years or so. Better diets, education and medical research can all be attributed to this change. For example, did you know that 20% of the world’s population will be over 60 years old by 2050? This is a considerable percentage and shows us just how much life expectancy is changing.

In our info graphic, see how life expectancy compares around the world. Which countries have the highest rates of life expectancy and which have the lowest rates. Also, find out how life expectancy has changed over time, for example in 1960, Canada’s life expectancy was at 71 years, while for 2011, this increased to 82 years. This is an increase of over 10 years which is quite significant. We also look into the future and provide interesting facts and figures on what we can expect life expectancy to be like in 50 plus years from now.

Interestingly, science looks likely to have a major role in increasing life expectancy. New technologies like Nanobots, which are artificial devices capable of protecting every cell in the body from disease and injury, are currently in the research phase and could become a reality by early2030’s. Check out our info graphic to learn more on the future of life expectancy!
