Sorry if anyone has already stated this, but if you go back in history most people only lived til like 40 tops.

Or is oxygen getting less toxic as years go by? -.-

No we're just getting better at delaying the effects of it.
People lived till they were 70 or more before too, it was a lot rarer.

we've porobly developed some sort of immunity for it that allows us to live longer
also, deseases were a bigger deal back in the day

well you can say that we are adapting to work with it meaning well evolution only if that theory is true which would mean co2 and other air pollution is fighting oxygen
but again thats a bit outlandish

That statistic is somewhat skewed, actually. A lot of people died in childhood because of ******** living conditions. Chances were, though, if you made it to 30 or so you'd probably live to see yous fifties and sixties.

So, yeah. ******** conditions other than oxygen and a lot of earlier deaths skewing the life average due to these ****** conditions.

I guess you are right, but I am sure if oxygen was toxic we would have build an immunity by now.

That said, there is no globally accepted cause of death, as most people die from a problem caused by there age not the age itself (such as heart stopping etc)
