Once virtually nonexistent, the world's population of centenarians is projected to reach nearly 6 million by midcentury. This population has already jumped from an estimated few thousand in 1950 to more than 340,000 worldwide today, with the highest concentrations in the U.S. and Japan, according to Census Bureau figures.
People living 100 years and longer are projected to grow at more than 20 times the rate of total population growth by 2050, making them the fastest growing age segment.
We are the first generation in history to receive advance notice that we will likely live longer than we ever thought, whether we like it or not! Your extended years can be active and healthy for 80, 90, 100 years and beyond.
The choices you make now will influence the quality of your life in the decades to come. You have the opportunity now to make your life healthier, fuller, and to matter more than ever.
This common sense longevity principle is simple. You are inherently designed to thrive as you age and you can, if you aid your body's Innate Intelligence, trust yourself, start making healthier choices, and make the changes you know you need to make to support good health.
Good choices include well-known factors referred to in chiropractic as the Triad of Health. Imbalance to any one or more of these areas leads to health challenges.
Take care of your health now so you can prosper for a lifetime. It's the quality of our years that counts. Envision and take the actions to aim for a "sensational century" and enjoy the journey every step of the way.
