I just read an article about the birthday of a 107-year old woman, Louise Jean Signore, in the Bronx, New York, on July 31st. She was born in 1912, the same year of the Titanic disaster.
When asked why she’d lived so long, the article explains:
Proud of her Italian heritage she believes good home food and lots of fruit and vegetables without soda or cake all played a part in her longevity. But above of all all else, Signore who lives alone believes one other key factor has reduced the stress in her life massively and kept her alive.
‘I think the secret of 107: I never got married. I think that’s the secret,’ Signore told CBS.
Oh, dear. I ate cake, I drank soda and I’ve been married for almost 49 years. The only thing I did right on that list was eating good Italian home-cooked food. I hope that’s enough!!!
