World’s Oldest Person Ate These 3 Foods Until 119 Years Old And They Aren’t Healthy

The world’s oldest living person was a 119-year-old Japanese woman, named Kane Tanaka. She was a certified Guinness World Record holder for being the oldest woman ever after she turned 119 earlier this year. She was just three years away from the oldest person ever, Jeanne Louise Calment who lived to be 122 years old and died in 1997. Kane Tanaka, unfortunately, passed away at the age of 119 on April 19, 2022. Now, this led to many wondering what was her secret behind the longevity. Well, read on to find out.

Her Secret To Long Life Was Eating Her Favourite Food

Now you’d think, Kane Tanaka the world’s oldest living person, ate only healthy food like fruits and veggies for her long, healthy life. Interestingly, this thought is quite further away from the truth. Kane Tanaka revealed in an interview with  Japan National Tourism Organisation in 2020, that the secret to a long life for her is to do the things that one would like to do. For her it would mean, eating the food that she likes, doing the things she yearned to do and enjoying each day to its fullest.

Tanaka truly showed us that eating food that we love, and living each day to its fullest is the secret to happy, healthy and long life.
