On April 15, 2017, Emma Morano passed away peacefully in Verbania, Italy at the age of 117 years, 137 days, and 16 hours! She was the oldest person in the world, according to her obituary. What explains her longevity?
She lived very quietly in a church-owned apartment near beautiful Lake Maggiore. Was the lake's mild climate a factor, or perhaps the three raw eggs she ate every day for nearly a century? As always with long life, the role of diet emerges. Was it the three eggs each day or the lack of processed foods and sodas, or any number of other possible factors? How to live a long, healthy life has become an obsession in modern times as it seems we become less and less healthy.
