'World's oldest person' found in South Africa

10 posts in this topic

At 119 years old Johanna Mazibuko, who lives in small town south-west of Johannesburg, could be the world's oldest person.

Ms Mazibuko was born in 1894, according to her identity papers, and has outlived five of her seven children.

I seem to remember that if you manage to live to 114 years, you are one of the few who can say they have lived one million hours. If any of you want to check the math feel free, it's too early!

If this issue is true(pending goverment recognition) this is outstanding.

Having read the article, it appears that she only has trouble walking and gets dizzy when standing-up.

In other words, no apparent debilitating dementia or major organ failure at this point. The dizzyness does somewhat indicate progressive heart failure or vascular condition(blood pressure issues)

Even still, this is remarkable if shown to be true. Was it diet, exercise, genetics, etc...?

Medical science might learn a lot from this, if allowed.

Good for her! As my own mother is almost 100, this is a great thing. My mother's grandfather drowned when he fell off his son's fishing boat at 102 years old. He had never learned to swim.
