When it comes to aging successfully and remaining in good health, are centenarians the perfect role models? Researchers from Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin have been studying illness trajectories in centenarians during the final years of their lives. According to their findings, people who died aged 100 or older suffered fewer diseases than those who died aged 90 to 99, or 80 to 89. The findings of this study have been published in The Journal of Gerontology: Medical Sciences.
