Transcript:
For centuries people have been able to improve their lifespans through DIETARY changes, public health policies and other factors. However, a recent study from the Albert Einstein college of Medicine, it's found that the limits of HUMAN LONGEVITY may have already been reached. In fact, researchers believe that the maximum life span likely peaked decades ago around 1995. According to a news release issued by the school, the team used two different data sets: The human mortality database and the International database on longevity as the basis for the study. Based on the calculations, they concluded that humans can typically live a maximum of 115 years, but the absolute upper limit is likely 125 years. And while they acknowledge that medical breakthroughs could increase the average life expectancy, researchers believe the maximum will likely remain unchanged. As such, they suggested efforts should focus on improving the health and QUALITY of life, instead of trying to live longer.

Oh, I made a mistake. On line 8, it's "their" not "the".

Also, the last line, "instead of on trying" not "Instead of trying"

Hi KP,
I really like the way you criticise people but you have the wrong answers yourselves. Oh the irony, it's killing me...
Too bad for you, the answer No. 5 should be "125 (years)". You know why? READ THIS: "and that the absolute upper AGE limit is". The content itself has the word "age", why do you still have to force "years" into that?
Next, unfinished answer for No. 6? Are you kidding me? Have you read the transcript by me? (In case you don't know, it's the big chunk of words right under the lesson). In WHICH, "efforts should focus on improving the health and QUALITY of life, instead of trying to live longer.". You see that? Health and Quality of life. Have you EVER seen a phrase such as this? "HEALTH OF LIFE"? Because I HAVEN'T.
So, Please, next time, if you want to point out the flaws in anyone's argument or answers, make sure that you are RIGHT first. Thank you.

Great work on transcribing. Just a little note for you.
"However, a recent study from the Albert Einstein college of Medicine, it's found....." -> "it's found" should be "has found", don't you think?

Hi Hanna,
Oh yeah now I notice it. Should have revised the text. Thanks.

@NKD
You did a good job! There are just a few things that I've noticed:
... a recent study from the Albert Einstein (How did you manage to hear this name? :) ) College of Medicine HAS found that ...
... they SUGGEST that ...

For centuries, people have been able to improve their life spans through dietary changes, public healthy policies and other factors.

However, a recent study from Albert Ilemsy college Medicine has found that limits of the human longevity may have already been reached.

In fact, researcher believe the maximum life span likely peaked decades ago around 1995. According to newsuly issued by the school, the team used two different data sets:the human mortality database and international database along longevity as the bases for study. Based on the calculation, they conclude that human can particularly live of maximum of 115 years, but the absolute upper limit is likely 125 years.

And while they are acknowledged of medical break through could increase average life expectancy,
researchers believe the maximum would likely remain unchanged. At such, they suggest the effort should focus on improving healthy and quality of life instead of trying to live longer.
