‘Olive oil and a shot of COGNAC every morning’: People over 100 years old from around the world share their secrets to longevity

 

The below infographic presents lessons from people around the world who made it to a century old. Somewhat surprisingly, many of them sung the praises of alcohol

We all hope to lead long and happy lives. So who better to take health advice from than someone who’s lived past 100?

Conveniently, a new infographic presents 25 lessons in longevity from people around the world who made it to a century old.

Somewhat surprisingly, many of them sung the praises of alcohol.

Dominic Miglino, a New Yorker, said his secret was a shot of Remy Martin cognac every morning; while New Jersey-resident Agnes Fenton drank three beers and a shot of whiskey daily; and British Second World War veteran Cliff Crozier once remarked: ‘A spot of whiskey occasionally helps’.

Japanese mother-of-seven Kamato Hongo, who made it to a staggering 110 before dying of pneumonia in 2003, offered the rather unusual advice: ‘Sleep for two days then stay awake for two days’.

And Californian postal worker John Gotelli, who lived to 103, simply said: ‘Don’t worry about anything’.
