Let us imagine that we are able to reverse aging damage so that someone is 65 or older has the same amount of aging as someone who is 65. This means for an average American man, then half of those people will still be dead by the time they have reached 95 years of age. This is because 1.6% of them are dying every year in the 65-year-old condition. Also, only 80% of them have survived from birth to the age of 65.
Asian American women in New Jersey live to a life expectancy of 93. Half of them reach the age of 93. Antiaging that reverses the aging damage every year for men so that they never get worse physically than when they are 65, get them to a life expectancy that is just beyond what Asian American women in New Jersey already achieve.
How about freezing aging risk and condition for an average American woman starting and maintaining at 65. Half of those women will still be dead by the time they have reached 110 years of age. This is because 1% of them are dying every year in the 65-year-old condition. Also, only 87% of them have survived from birth to the age of 65.
If the aging damage only reverses to the level of someone who is 70 or 75, then this is not hugely significant because the death rates are already very high. The population life expectancy statistics would not be much different than what exists for healthier countries or stastically identifiable groups within countries.
How about reversing aging damage and keeping someone as fit as a 60-year-old? This would mean American men could have a life expectancy of 110 and American women could have a life expectancy of 150. The average for men and women would be 130. The physical structure of people who are older than 60 would still have been reduced. Fully benefiting from removing cellular and systemic aging damage would mean rejuvenated older people would need to rebuild lost muscle and strengthen bones.
How about reversing aging damage and keeping someone as fit as a 50-year-old? This would mean American men could have a life expectancy of 170 and American women could have a life expectancy of 260. The average life expectancy for men and women would be 215. The physical structure of people who are older than 50 would still have been reduced prior to rejuvenation. Fully benefiting from removing cellular and systemic aging damage would mean rejuvenated older people would need to rebuild lost muscle and strengthen bones.
If we get really good aging damage repair for antiaging then people will have to be strong, healthy and alert or they will not be living extremely long lives. People cannot live another 50 years if they are in physical state of people who are currently 100 years old. They have to be revived or they will on average only last 3 more years.
