According to The Futurist Magazine, The number of centenarians worldwide will increase 16-fold by 2050, reaching 2.2 million persons, up from 135,000 currently. Women will far outnumber men in that age group, but men who survive into their 100s-avoiding Alzheimer's disease in their 80s and 90s-will retain sharper mental fitness, researchers predict.
