Jewish Scientists- Please Explain

The facts:
SAO PAULO, Brazil (AP) - An elderly woman living in a small, wooden shack in rural southern Brazil could be the world's oldest living woman, according to a Brazilian record-keeping organization.

Maria Olivia da Silva, who recently celebrated her 125th birthday, "is definitely the oldest living woman in Brazil and possibly in the entire world," said Iolete Cadari, administrative director of RankBrasil, this country's equivalent to the Guinness World Records.

Da Silva's birth certificate shows that she was born Feb. 28, 1880 in the city of Itapetininga, Sao Paulo state, Cadari said by telephone.

The problem:
I was brought up believing that people can only live to be 120 years old. *throws yamulke on the floor* How can there be a 125 year old woman if all my rabbis told me that people can only live to 120?! *stomps on yamulke*

Can anyone make these mesh without getting chairem?
