Will Scientific Advancements and Healthy Lifestyles Increase Longevity?

Evanston, Ill. (Vocus) December 21, 2009 -- Medical breakthroughs and technological advances – in combination with healthy lifestyles - will help improve the lives of older Americans during 2010, according to the Mather LifeWays Institute on Aging.

Hollinger-Smith said that in 2010, not only will there be more Americans over the age of 65, but the number of those 85 and older will increase as well. “A decade ago, reaching the age of 85 was considered very old. Now it’s more the norm. Next year, 14.4 percent of the age 65+ population -- 5.7 million individuals -- will be over age 85,” explained Hollinger-Smith.

Among the top 2010 trends identified by MLIA are:
