Norway’s oldest resident, Gunda Harangen, died at the age of 109. The Norwegian took a glass of brandy every day and lived alone, without a man to upset him. He stated that this was the key to his longevity. Gunda Harangen’s relative informed the Norwegian media of her death. According to him, the long liver died in her sleep on November 25.
Gunde Harangen would turn 110 in less than a month. The woman was born on December 28, 1898, as the eldest of seven siblings. Women who desire to live a long life can profit from the Norwegian’s advise to avoid connections with men. However, as British scientists discovered, the situation for men is different.
In August 2008, the study’s findings, which concluded that polygamy is the key to male lifespan, were published. After controlling for socioeconomic disparities, the researchers determined that males over the age of 60 in 140 polygamous countries lived an average of 12% longer than men in 49 monogamous countries.
Scientists attribute the presence of children and a strong education to people living longer lives. Children not only make parents’ lives more varied, hectic, and stressful, but they also make adults more careful and lead healthier lives. When it comes to the impact of education on life expectancy, men and women with postsecondary education in the same age group are just half as likely to die as those with primary education.
According to studies, stormy family scenes are another way to extend life. Scientists believe that partners who want a peaceful resolution and do not allow their sentiments to be expressed are twice as likely to die early as those who express their concerns in some way.
