Sadly, last Friday, we lost 116-year-old Susannah Mushatt Jones, the previous oldest person in the world. The Brooklyn resident credited her remarkable longevity to, of all things, eating bacon every day. But if digging on swine isn’t your thing, don’t worry, the world’s new oldest person has her own somewhat bizarre eating habits.
On Monday, Emma Morano, who was born on November 29, 1899, was certified by Guinness World Records as the new oldest person alive. The Italian woman, who currently resides in the small town of Verbania, Italy, is believed to be the last remaining living person who was born in the 19th century. How did she do it? Eggs and brandy, of course, though not at the same time.
