Happy birthday to the world's oldest person!


Happy 117th birthday to Emma Morano of Verbenia, Italy! Morano is the oldest person on Earth and the last living individual born in the 19th century. From the BBC:


Ms Morano's longevity, she admits, is partly down to genetics - her mother reached 91 and several sisters reached their centenary - and partly, she says, down to a rather unusual diet of three eggs - two raw - each day for more than 90 years.


It was a regime she took up as a young woman, after the doctor diagnosed her with anaemia shortly after World War One.


These days, she has cut down to just two eggs a day, and a few biscuits.
