Looking at current trends is pretty much the worst tack you could have picked.

The majority of the life expectancy increase over the Twentieth Century in developed countries was due to reduced infant and child mortality.

Life expectancy for people who have already made it to adulthood isn't going up more than a few weeks for every year that we age. Guess what that means? Unless an asymptote in that life expectancy graph comes up pretty soon, you ain't outrunning the reaper.
