As noted with our excited post last week, we are once again in the throws of the John Mauldin SIC – Strategic Investment Conference.
So far this years most ear catching moment has nothing to do with finance but comes from two Doctors who are repeat speakers from last year to give the group a Covid related update.
Their predictions last year (think at a time where a lot of uncertainty abounded) were spot on and almost unbelievable accuracy. So accurate they hardly needed to update their presentation.
Knowing we teased you with the headline, stay with us please … and take a quick moment to review these two Doctors backgrounds/Credibility! – Pretty Awesome stuff!
These guys are not show boaters!
So maybe not Dr. Culver’s best look … think super smart professor we have all had in our life!
Make it to 2030 and You will Likely Live Over Age 100
My mouth almost dropped when I heard these two stately Doctors utter the words above.
There is a super cool chart that the Doctors had in their slide deck, and of course it is the ONLY slide that had “Not for Reproduction” …. so in honoring their request … here is a recreated slide from their predictions.
Since 1850 average mortality has increase 2.5 years every ten years.
From 2020 to 2030 the Doctors believe we will see an increase age expectancy of 30 years, yep THIRTY!
That is the huge jump in the chart on the very far right upper expected mortality age 112 !
Much of this is due to the expected pull forward of knowledge earned from Covid and the various Vaccines.
The Doctors repeatedly mentioned that they expect a youthful elder years as well, not just extended longevity!
Recommended Life Style and Personal Health Monitoring
Here is a quick Legend for the abbreviations:
- Blood Pressure
- Body Mass Index
- Fasting Blood Sugar
- No Tobacco
- Stress Management – VERY INTERESTING! Newly added by the Doctors
For the record, those are not low hurdles using my own situation as an example!
Look for a more detailed review of this in the coming Newsletter!
Have a Great “Make it to 2030, live to over 100” Day!
