Dear Friends,

Do you know any new reputable publications, discussing the following topics:

1. What will be human longevity (life expectancy) in developed countries by years 2050 and 2100?

2. What factors will play a major role in the extension of longevity?

3. What factors are likely to increase mortality from some specific diseases in the future?

Also if you have your own studies and publications on related topics, please let me know, so that I could cite and acknowledge them at upcoming lecture at the international conference in Bermuda:

And here is the power-point presentation of our invited talk:

How Long Will We Live in the 21st Century?

By the way, what would be your advice what to do and to see in Bermuda after the conference? :)

Thank you, and looking forward to hear from you,

Kind regards,

-- Leonid
