8 Tips For Living A Long Life From People Over 100

A woman who smoked cigarettes, drank wine and ate chocolate had the longest confirmed human lifespan on record at 122

The longest confirmed human lifespan on record belongs to Jeanne Calment who lived the ripe old age of 122 years, 164 days. Calment ascribed her longevity and relatively youthful appearance to a diet rich in olive oil (which she also rubbed onto her skin). She also drank port wine and ate nearly one kilogram of chocolate every week. She smoked cigarettes from the age of 21 (1896) to 117 (1992).

Jeanne married well and lived a life of leisure. She had no real health issues the majority of her life. She took up fencing at age 85 (1960) and continued to ride her bicycle up until her 100th birthday. She was reportedly not athletic or fanatical about her health. Calment lived on her own until shortly before her 110th birthday, when it was decided that she needed to be moved to a nursing home after starting a small fire in her house.
