By 2030 major global public health improvements will need anti-aging breakthroughs

By 2030, two-thirds of the world’s population will be global middle class or wealthier (5.6 billion out of 8.5 billion). Asia will be over 75% global middle class or rich in 2030.

By 2050, the world will be 80% global middle class or wealthier and 70+% urban.

85-90% of the developed world dies from aging-related disease

About 85-90% of the developed world dies from aging-related diseases. Therefore, significant progress on global public health will only happen with progress on anti-aging and life extension.

Without a breakthrough on anti-aging about 4 million people will live past 100 in 2050. This will be about 0.8% of the 500 million people born from 1945-1950.

Only one in 1000 centenarians reach 110+. Only about 3% make it to 105+.
