This is a list of longevity myths, people who claimed to be 130 or older. None of them are validated by GRG. The oldest validated living person is Japanese woman Kane Tanaka, who is 117. The oldest authenticated human lifespan in scientific history is 122 years, 164 days, in the case of Jeanne Calment. Scientists estimate that the maximum possible hypothetical lifespan is in the range of 125–130 years. Thus, claims over 130 may be considered to be "myth"...claims outside the range of statistical possibility.
