Do you want to live to be 100?

Twenty year olds are three times more likely to reach their 100th birthdays than their grandparents and twice as likely as their parents, official figures show. A baby born this year is almost eight times more likely to reach 100 than one born 80 years ago, according to the figures issued by the Department for Work and Pensions. A girl born this year has a one in three chance of reaching their 100th birthday, while boys have a one in four chance.
