La “esperanza de vida” a lo largo de la historia humana

Desde hace tiempo me ha fascinado el tema de la longevidad humana. Cuando hice una investigación sobre la evolución de la esperanza de vida a lo largo de la historia humana, me topé con una estadística que a primera vista parecía chocante: en 1900, la “media esperanza de vida” en España no llegaban a los 35 años, y en China e India ni siquiera llegaba a los 25. Al leer estos datos, la primera impresión que tendría mucha gente es que hace un siglo todo el mundo moría antes de los 35 años, y si tenías 33 ya eras un “viejo”.

Spain - Population

The country's population grew very slowly throughout the latter half of the nineteenth century and most of the twentieth. In the 1860s, the population increased by only about one-third of one percent annually; by the first decades of the twentieth century, this rate of increase had grown to about 0.7 percent per year. Between the 1930s and the 1980s, population growth rates hovered between 0.8 and 1.2 percent annually. One significant factor in Spain's population growth has been a declining rate of births. Part of this change can be attributed to the increase in the percentage of women using contraceptives. At the same time that the birth rate was dropping sharply, Spain's low death rate also declined slightly, from 8 to 7 per 1,000.
