It could be good news for some people,
Want to live forever?
Theoretically, you can, the study says.
Humans can probably live to at least 130, and possibly well beyond, though the chances of reaching such advanced ages remain vanishingly small, according to new research.
The outer limit of the human lifespan has long been hotly debated, with recent studies making the case we could live up to 150 years, or arguing that there is no maximum theoretical age for humans.

For now, the oldest person on record is Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 at the confirmed age of 122.
Her true age was the subject of some controversy, with claims of possible fraud,
but in 2019 several experts said a review of the evidence confirmed her age.

Other pretenders to the throne of the oldest person ever have a long way to go.
The oldest verified living person in the world is Japan’s Kane Tanaka, a comparatively youthful 118.

Hope it helps and is fast-tracked. I have kidney disease and one of my aunt's died from it. So those headlines always grab my attention.

If it does what they say it does - they'll be "flying off the shelf!"

That is wonderful news!! There are people with rare blood types that have been waiting for decades for a transplant. It won't help me, but I'm thrilled for those who have been waiting for so long.
