In Verbania, Italy, yesterday, Emma Morano became the oldest person in the world at age 115. Born on November 29, 1899, she is believed to be the last surviving person in the world born in the 1800s. She credits her longevity to eating three raw eggs a day, something she has done since her teens when her doctor recommended it as a way to combat anemia. Or, depending on the source, to a daily glass of homemade brandy. A different report said her current doctor of 23 years recommended two raw eggs and 100 grams of raw steak.
