    Revenge of the Elders
    As the aging populations of Europe and Japan come to represent the local majority, it would seem the elderly are posed to reclaim some of the cultural territory they lost to the decades long bias towards youth. And as the search for immortality continues, the extremely old, reverently referred to as supercentenarians, are in the position to become icons as celebrated and admired as the most flawless of pop stars. Edna Parker (pictured below) is one out of 100 people in the Supercentenarian database, whose DNA is being used to study genetic links to long lives.

    So, while the ambition of most longevity enthusiasts is to reverse or eliminate the aging process, what if instead, as lifespans increase, there is a renaissance of beauty at age 200+?



    Ann Pouder 110 YO England

    Maria Capovilla 116 Eucador

    Edna Parker 115 YO US

    Yone Minagawa 115 Japan

    Jauna Bautista 125 YO Cuba

    Interestingly, longevity is increasing in Cuba (home to Juana Bautista, the oldest woman in the world) in part due to the winning combination of social programs, cigars, and a healthy sex life.

    The renaissance of beauty emerges with individuals. I find these women most beautiful. Thanks for this peek into our humaness reality.
