World’s Oldest Person Turns 117, Eats 2 Uncooked Eggs a Day
Emma Morano, the oldest living person,celebrated her 117th birthday on Tuesday. Friends, neighbors and her doctor joined Morano in her small apartment home in the northern Italian mountain town of Verbania. Emma Morano is thought to be the last living person born in the 1800s. She outlived all her brothers and sisters, including one who died at age 102. Emma Morano says one of her secrets to living long is eating at least two uncooked eggs every day. Her doctor credits Morano's long life to her unusual diet, her genes and positive outlook on life.
