On a similar tangent, back in med school, had a few courses on geriatrics. The professor showed data/graphs/etc. that even with all the medical advancements, humans on average tend to push up daisies around 85 years old. I think the most recent theory is dealing with DNA telomere length/repair. Telomeres get too short, DNA goes haywire, cells go bad.Like your link, linear degradation leads to logarithmic risk. JLC
