Woman in China claims to be 127 years old

If Luo Meizhen's claim is accurate then she would be the oldest human being to have ever lived.

Meizhen lives in China's Guangxi province and has one son who she claims she gave birth to at the age of 61. Her alleged date of birth is believed to be August 25th, 1885 - making her a full five years older than the previously recognized record holder. Meizhen celebrated her 127th birthday with rice, pork, duck, chicken and cake.

Despite many residents in China's Bama County reaching 100 years of age, Meizhen's claim of being 127 has been met with a considerable degree of skepticism. By contrast, the oldest verified living person has only just turned 116.

"A woman from the Guangxi province of China is claiming to be 127-years-old, a figure that would eclipse the world’s verified oldest person by five years."

She's only above the oldest verifiable age (Jeanne Calment) by about 4 1/2 years. So, who knows. Her giving birth at the age of 61, I'm more suspicious about. But then again she's older than the Guinness Book, so again, who knows? She could tell you and me a lot of things.

what do you buy 127 year old. ? Diapers, sweets, Scotch, colourful drinking straws and extra diapers. Or clothes that look ridiculous.

Dietry restriction with high nutrition extends female fertility too. The scientists need to look at her diet to see if its plant based with the occasional bit of meat.

Fact of the matter is that she is actually 135 years old. Why do women feel the need to lie about their age?

She doesn't look a day over 118.

Just by looks, I'd believe her. Or that she's on meth and 27.

I've noticed too that women who enjoy just the occasional bit of meat seem to live to a ripe old age. Unlike those greedy ones. I'm sure I read that the average life expectancy of a female adult-entertainer is around 37 or summat, e.g. Edit to remove video of greedy adult-entertainers lest I get banned.
