EUROPEANS are set to live two years longer by the year 2030.
A new infographic by Medigo has compared life expectancy now to predicted expectancy in 2030.
The graphic shows that Europeans will have an average life expectancy of 78 by 2030.
In fact, life expectancy is expected to steadily increase across the globe, with the largest increase predicted for central and south African countries where residents are predicted to live five years longer.
The graphic based on WHO statistics (see below) has also outlined which diseases are likely to rise and fall over the next 15 years.
Diabetes is set to grow by an alarming 34%, while the number of cases of diarrhoea and HIV are expected to fall.
Prostate cancer is also due to claim 38% more lives by 2030, while cases of bladder and throat cancer are also expected to rise.
Coronary artery disease is predicted to be the biggest killer, claiming 1.9 million lives in Europe in the year 2030.
