The oldest woman in the world († 124) died, and before her death she revealed the recipe for longevity


Francisca Susan, who was considered the oldest man in the world, died in the Philippines on Monday. According to the Philippine authorities, the woman was 124 years old, but she did not live to see the official record confirmation.

Francisca, nicknamed Lola Iska in the Philippines, died according to authorities at her home in Kabankalan. The woman was the last living person to be born in the 19th century, reports the daily Metro.

The Philippine authorities claim that Francisca was born on September 11, 1897, a year before Spain relinquished its rule over the Philippines and sold them to the United States.

Unfortunately, the woman has never survived confirmation that she is the oldest man in the world. Representatives of the Guinness Book of Records did not start examining her age until September this year.

Before she died, Francisca confided in her a recipe for longevity. The secret allegedly lay in the diet – she ate mainly vegetables, she ate only occasionally. She claimed that she owed her blessed age to the fact that she never drank alcohol.

If the records of the Philippine authorities were to be confirmed, Susan would surpass the absolute record of the Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, who died in 1997 at the age of 122. According to the Guinness Book, the oldest living person today is Japan’s Kane Tanaka, who is 118 years old.
