Meet the world’s oldest women

The world’s oldest woman turns 117 on November 27.

Emma Morano says the secret to her long life is eggs.

For the last 90 years she has eaten at least two eggs a day – which equates to over 100,000 eggs consumed in her lifetime.

Born in Verbania, Italy in 1899, Morano began eating eggs at the age of 20, after a doctor diagnosed her with anaemia. He told her to eat two raw eggs and one cooked egg daily.

Her doctor, Carlo Bava, confirmed that his patient didn’t follow conventional nutritional advice.

Despite turning 117, she says it’s unlikely she’ll have even a bite of her birthday cake.

“The last time I ate a little, but then I did not feel good,” she recalled.

Marono has a few birthdays to go before she breaks the record for the oldest verified age: 122 years and 164 days, held by French woman Jeanne Calment who died in 1997.

She hasn’t left her two-room apartment for the last 20 years, has outlived all her immediate family and isn’t planning on a birthday party.
