Meet Emma, she is 116 years old

Post by Agartha on Sat May 14, 2016 4:16 am

The oldest woman alive. She's from Piemonte, where I spent my childhood.
I love her reasons on why she lived so long: daily raw eggs, daily pasta with mince, early bedtime, drinks Brandy and  being single! lol (was married but left her unhappy marriage). I think the fact she doesn't have children helped.

Meet Emma Morano the 116 year old woman who may be the last living person born in the 1800s.

The oldest living person in the world, and the only one left who has touched three centuries, is a raw-egg-eating, brandy-drinking Italian woman who credits her long life to her daily eggs, her early bedtime and being single.


Emma Morano received the news Friday morning that Susannah Mushatt Jones, a New York woman several months her senior, had died Thursday evening, making Morano the world's oldest known person at 116.

The Italian supercentenarian was born in the Piedmont region of northern Italy on Nov 29, 1899. She lives now in a small lakeside town near the Switzerland border, still in her own one-bedroom home. Doctors make house calls, but for a 116-year-old, her health is good.

She worked until she was 75. Last year I read about this 100 year old man in England who was still working part time at his local MacDonalds... I think keeping active is essential to living longer.

I agree with keep active Ags, don't know about the rest, you might try what she did, and it kills you, no one would know what killed you. Why some people live long can be anything.

True, you never know. I actually met a couple of people that were around 100 years old in Ghana, but unfortunately none of them had birth certificates to prove it.

Yes keeping active and doing as much for yourself as you can is important, as they say if you don't use it you lose it, totally true!

I see that Queen Liz has just had her 90th, she will last almost as long!
