The World's Oldest Woman Gives Away Her Secrets For Longevity.

As of March 9, 2019, the Guinness World Records officially declared Kane Tanaka as the oldest person in the world.

With advances in medicine and technology, people are living for much longer than they did 50 years ago. Even so, living into your 80s is considered a blessing for many people! The Guinness World Record association goes around the world recognizing people for their unique talents, abilities, and bodies. Just last week, a Japanese woman received a Guinness World Record and had plenty of advice to give on how she did it!


At 116 years and 66 days old, she’s seen and experienced it all. And despite her age and her medical problems, Kane’s still as happy as she could possibly be. So, how does she do it?
