About Longevity LIVE
The fact is, we are all living longer. However, the question is, are we living healthier?
In the Stone Age life expectancy from birth was around 25 years. This number barely moved until the middle ages. From 1800 longevity numbers started to look a little more positive. By 1900, the average American lived to 49 years. Over the next 100 years, life expectancy rose to 77 years on average. And by 2015 the world actually recorded 3, 5 million centenarians.
Deaths from heart attacks, strokes and even cancer have eased down. With the ban on smoking in most countries and a focus on healthier living, certain segments of populations around the world are enjoying their best longevity years ever. And it looks as if these will get even better.
Indeed some predict that a baby born today could live easily to 150 years of age.
The concept of longevity, of living longer but in better health is now more attainable than ever before.

Longevity was the first magazine in America to talk about the art and science of staying young
It all started with Longevity magazine. Longevity was launched in the United States of America in 1989 by Kathy Keeton. She was born and raised on a farm in South Africa and met her partner Bob Guccione in London. They moved to the United States where she helped him to build a multi-million-dollar business empire. Kathy was appointed President and Chief Operating Officer of General Media Communications, Inc. She founded the magazines Viva (1973), Omni (1978), and Longevity (1989 in the USA). She also wrote two non-fiction books, Woman of Tomorrow (1986) and Longevity: The Science of Staying Young (1992).
Longevity today continues to publish in accordance with the founding principles.
