What do you think of the 100-year life, people living for 100 years?

Q: What do you think of the 100-year life, people living for 100 years?

I have not read this book, and this isn’t a common topic in the US, so I don’t really have a strong opinion about it.

Living to 100 in a country that does not have national health care is fairly difficult. But if you were planning to try to live such a long life, I imagine you would need to start taking extra good care of yourself very early in life. You’d also need to start financial planning very early on, to make sure you have enough money to support yourself in old age.

I don’t personally think that trying to live to 100 or longer is worthwhile unless you have an exceptional body and mind. Both of my grandparents lived to be 95 years old, but they both had health and mental conditions (one had dementia, one had Alzheimer’s disease) that left them living in facilities. I am not personally interested in this kind of life.
