Natalie Peters & Erin Molan

A futurist made a whopping prediction, that in 2019, 80 will be the new 60.

Marian Salzman says her reasons for the prediction come down to an increase in financial wealth, improved health and the fact that we’re all living longer.

Former Australian of the Year and a woman with her eye on the pulse, Ita Buttrose says people in their 80s feel they have a lot of living left to do.

“We’d all be fibbing if we suggest we all felt like we did we were 60.

“Whether we like it or not, the body takes its own little path as you get older.”
