Longevity is all about the maximum age we can possibly live to. Potentially we can live to be a hundred and thirty years old – this has been calculated by the number of times the cells in our body can possibly divide. Cell division is all about our cells reproducing and repairing themselves. Jeanne Calment, the French supercentenarian with the longest confirmed lifespan in history, nearly made it. She died at a hundred and twenty-two years old having outlived both her daughter and her grandson. Here are some of her secrets that are supported by science:

  • Learn to be more stress tolerant through meditation and exercise
  • Be as active as you can
  • Eat only when you are hungry and eat well
  • Have a glass of red wine each day
  • Use olive oil
