List of Living Myths to age 130+

Claims to 115-130 can be found at Longevity Claims (115-129) and Living longevity claims

(Main article: List of longevity myths (130+))

Below is a list of longevity myths over the age of 130+, who have been reported as "living" within the past year. Dead claims will be in the main article called Longevity myths.

Studies show that less than 2% of claims to age 115 are validated (add citation...), and approximately 0% of claims to 120+ are validated; the only exception being the Jeanne Calment case. That said, it's hypothetically possible for humans to live longer than 122; experts such as Jean-Marie Robine and Don Gennery have predicted that the odds of someone living to 122 in all of history to be approximately 12-14% (citation needed...see GRG website for Gennery citation).

Living claims that have had no update for over two years will be moved to limbo.
