Hard to believe there isn't somebody in China that might be older, but I find this to be interesting.

Thanks and God rest her soul.

Sharp as a bull, looked like she was no older than 70. I asked her what was her secret? She said eggs and bacon every morning since she was a small girl.

in raw eggs is not usable. The chain is incomplete. You have to cook them, even slightly for your body to use it.
Interesting that the doctor she had

when she was 20 told her to eat a raw egg and a cooked egg every day and she followed it until now.

what their secret is to a long life is kind of funny to me. They'll just mention some food they eat every day, whether it has anything to do with it or not. No one for example would mention genetics.
