Luo Mei Zhen

Luo Mei Zhen

July 9, 2013 will mark a monumental achievement for Luo Mei Zhen who on that day will reach her 128th year on this earth, potentially making her the oldest person alive today.

China seems to be home to a number of long-lived individuals, with a historical folk legend tagging a Chinese herbalist and martial artist, Li Qing Yun, as having lived anywhere from 197 to 256 years old. (Wikipedia)

Another “master of longevity” is martial artist Lu Zijian of Hubei Province, who as of 2009 was 116 years old.

What’s more astonishing about Luo Mei Zhen is that according to her residence certificate, her son Huang You Cai, was born when Luo Mei Zhen was 61 years old. (Baike.Baidu.com)

Luo Mei Zhen lives a simple, peaceful but productive life in her countryside home in Ba Ma Province in Guang Xi, China. She climbs rocks to cut bamboo, and adheres to a complete vegetarian diet, consisting of wild herbs, Dioscorea Fordii, cassava, greens, squash sprouts and bitter greens. According to her son, she does not smoke nor drink alcohol, and takes very good care of herself, sleeping at nine pm every night, and awaking around six in the morning. (Baike.baidu.com)
