These 5 Centenarian Women Are The Last Living People Born In The 1800s

There are only 5 living people born in the 1800s, and they are all women.
Statistically women tend to live longer, but the fact that these 5 centenarian women have seen the dawn of both the 20th and the 21st century is beyond extraordinary.

What it really takes to live so long is still a mystery, but according to these women a good nutrition, an active life and good sleep are the first rules to a long life.

Thinking about all the historical events these women have been through is really mind-boggling: two World Wars, economic crisis, the Cold War, the invention of television, the modern era and the internet revolution are just few of the things their eyes have seen.
