Mexico native Leandra Lumbreras is the oldest human alive. Just this past Sunday Lumbreras celebrated her 127th birthday with family. Lumbreras born on August 31, 1887; was 27 when World War one erupted, 75 when John F. Kennedy was murderer and almost 100 when the Berlin wall came crashing down. Lumbreras secret to living so long is eating chocolate, sleeping and never getting married.
Although Lumbreras is reported the oldest human in the world, Guinness Book of Records will not be knocking on her door because she lost her birth certificate 40yrs ago while moving. So the title still remains with Japan’s Misao okawa who is 12yrs younger(115).
