115 -Year-Old Woman Attributes Age to Raw Eggs and No Husband
Emma Morano, the fifth oldest person in the world, has advice for longevity, namely eating raw eggs and no husband since 1938. The 115-year-old Italian woman has watched Italy evolve "from a monarch to a republic that spawned nearly 70 governments in seven decades." She's been eating three raw eggs a day ever since her doctor recommended them to combat anemia. Morano decided to stay single after getting a divorce following the death of her infant son. She claims staying single is what has helped keep her kicking. Gerontologists agree there is no single answer to longevity.
