This granny is 119 years old and claims to be the oldest woman in the world

We would all like to have the elixir of life at hand, be immortal and never grow old. Unfortunately, apart from the stuff of some imaginative film or some science fiction story, there's no trick to remaining young and never growing old. However, on our planet there are those who do it with grace and energy, going so far as to blow out very important, we would say almost record-breaking, candles. Meet Seker Arslan, a woman from Turkey who claims to be the oldest in the world!

Seker Arslan has just turned 119 years old, lives in Turkey and seems to be the oldest living woman on planet Earth, despite more than valid "pretenders" to the title. The woman seems to have exceeded the previous record held by Kane Tanaka by only 6 months, a Japanese woman born on January 2, 1903, and who is therefore 118 years old.

Obviously, the authorities and those in charge have checked the veracity of Seker's age claim to make sure that the record can be formalized: and it seems that her identity card has the following date of birth imprinted: June 27, 1902, six months before Kane Tanaka was born!

But what is the secret to such a long life? To the fateful question from journalists from all over the world, Seker's daughter replied without doubts: "My mother has always followed a very specific diet. She eats a lot of healthy food, she always made homemade yogurt herself, every morning she eats a hard-boiled egg, while during the day she prefers a lot of homemade cheese and butter in her food! "

A diet rich in natural fats that Seker seems to have tolerated well all these years; think that during the most acute phase of the Covid-19 pandemic, the woman remained uninfected while the other family members who took care of her in the same house, including her grandchildren, had been infected: she has a strong immune system like a rock!

Despite Seker Arslan's record age, the woman is not the only one around the world who claims to be the oldest person ever: for example, a woman from India is reported to have turned 124, an age that was discovered when she went to get the Covid-19 vaccine, just as there is a woman from China who claims to be 134 years old, but in both cases there was no overwhelming evidence from the authorities, such as a valid identity document.

So, at least for the moment, Seker holds a pretty good record: congratulations to this granny!
