A really great example! Always remember that she was smoking all her life, drinking port wine every day, eating 1 kilo of chocolate every week, a lot of meat and always adding sugar in the water she was drinking. Now go back to your “ healthy diet“ avoiding alcohol, sugar, meat and smoking…. and die like the average human being at under 80…remember, she died at 122!!!
Madam Jeanne Louise Calment had the longest confirmed human lifespan: 122 years, 164 days. Apparently, fate strongly approved of the way she lived her life. She was born in Arles, France, on February 21, 1875. The Eiffel Tower was built when she was 14 years old. It was at this time she met Vincent van Gogh. „He was dirty, badly dressed, and disagreeable,“ she recalled in an interview given in 1988.
When she was 85, she took up fencing, and still rode her bike when she reached 100. At the age of 114, she starred in a film about her life, at age 115 she had an operation on her hip, and at age 117 she gave up smoking, having started at the age of 21 in 1896. She didn’t give it up for health reasons; her reason was that she didn’t like having to ask someone to help her light a cigarette once she was nearly blind.
