Woman, 115, Reveals Longevity Secrets: Raw Eggs, No Men

By    |   Tuesday, 17 February 2015 03:10 PM

A 115-year-old Italian woman believed to be the oldest living European has two surprising tips for longevity: Raw eggs, and no men.
 
Emma Morano, who has been single for 77 years, says she remained single after her first marriage ended in 1938 — and that has been a critical reason she has lived so long, The New York Times reports.
 
She also says she has followed a doctor's long-ago recommendation to eat three raw eggs a day (since reduced to two), which makes for a tally of around 100,000 eggs over her long life.
 
"For breakfast I eat biscuits with milk or water," she said, in a 2013 interview with La Stampa. Then come the eggs, followed by "pasta and minced meat ... for dinner, I'll have just a glass of milk."
 
She also apparently has good genetics on her side: One of eight children, Morano says one of her sisters lived to 102 and another died just before she hit the century mark.
 
On her decision to stay single in the decades after her marriage ended following the death of an infant son, she tells the Times that she "didn't want to be dominated by anyone."
