Though I'm not afraid of dying, the thought of losing my mental faculties in old age scares me. But is it likely to happen to me?

Danish researchers studied the mental abilities of people who have lived beyond 90. They found that people in their 90s now performed better on cognitive tests than those born a decade earlier did at around the same age. I think that's great news if the trend is a general one. I only want to live a long life if I can enjoy it!

Do you want to live beyond 90?


Living past 90 is becoming more likely as quality of life improves.
