Emma Morano is the oldest living person in the world confirmed by the Guinness Book of World Records on May 16, 2016. On that day she was 116 years and 130 days old. She is one of the few humans to have seen 3 centuries in her lifetime.
She was born in Italy on November 29, 1899. Now she is in a very good health. Emma lives in a small town near the Italy-Switzerland border. Her house has only one bedroom.
About her longevity, she points to eating two to three raw eggs per day, having an early bedtime and being single. Also, she eats pasta and mince meat every day. She is drinking brandy on occasion.
We come to the conclusion that you could live over 100 without totally carb-free, raw and vegan diet.
Also, the long and happy life that Emma has is associated with her single status since 1938. After her unhappy marriage she didn’t want to be dominated anymore.
Carlo Bava is Emma’s doctor and he said that her genetics and emotional state are one of the main factors in her longevity. The doctor also said how Emma is always so serene, often smiles, and able to find joy even when her life were difficult.
