“I don’t have any secret of living a long life. You need to be a good person with a balanced mind”, says Huang Xu Ping who is currently 113. According to locals, the abundance of “sunshine, clean air and water”, is reason for their longevity. But with more and more tourists coming to see them could the trappings of the modern world end their old way of life?

    If someone is 110, the grandchildren should be in their 60/65. All I want to see is the grandchildren to verify it.

    Once the Communist Satanic Elites see something is pristine they just have to ruin it with their Industrial garbage. Not worth being born with people like that breathing the same air. They destroy everything they touch, it seems their fruits are death, fire, chaos, despair and greed. They are turning us into their true home, hell.

    I know how to live a long life, just pray to God (if you believe in him) and know that he has your back in life. And also say โ€œI will live a long life and I will live my life like itโ€™s real golden!โ€

    I dont want to live a long life at 65. Enough is enough. Have no kids or friends Am ready to end it. There is nothing here!!

  15. Richard Lawson on October 11, 2020 at 8:30 pm

    animals on starvation diets live much longer than ones eating all they want…so the food scarcity contributed to her long life.

  16. Lignere Acidinski on October 11, 2020 at 8:33 pm

    I don’t care how much I will live, it is all upon to God and I will live as long as he wants me alive on this planet, I’m living by his laws and that’s all it is important for me

    I am probably the minority here. But seriously, a long life is NOT GOOD! life is suffering, why would you want to be alive and look all wrinkled for SO LONG?

    Why people are interested in longer lives? Longer life is a pity a pain and disgusting. Get rid of longer lives. The longer life one will spend the more sins he/she will commit. There is no escape from death. Old homes, miserable life.

  21. T on October 11, 2020 at 8:39 pm

    The longjevity village is fake, its shown they lie and edploit the elderly for cash donations, they exagerate the ages by 20 or 30 years as it pays well to say your over 100, most dont live past 80.

    Wonder if they have to wear diapers. I know that those muscles usually stop working at 100 years old. My Mother lived to be 102 and had to start wearing "depends"!

  24. Abu Bardewa on October 11, 2020 at 8:40 pm

    Digestive system is the most important one for long life.
    The more you eat, more you wear down down your digestive and immune system.

    Interesting! I would like to know more concretely about their diet – as they are saying it contains/contained mainly corn and potatoes. What about all the essential amino acids / full proteins? Potatoes contain them all, although only 2% – so you would need very large amounts. Corn is lacking lysin and especially tryptophan – why American Indians used to process corn through a nixtamalization process (cooked with ashes in order to release the the tryptophan) or combined it with beans. Does their diet also contain at least animal milk products and beans, such as (fermented) soja beans? The genetic factor in terms of food surely come from other traditional staples – neither corn, nor potatoes are native plants in China. Has anyone concrete or further information on this? Thank you!

  30. joy muring on October 11, 2020 at 8:50 pm

    i think that’s why they live a long life just because the good enviroment fresh air fresh vegetable the important healthy diet.good bless u.

  31. crystlfire on October 11, 2020 at 8:51 pm

    They can still hear well even being over 100 years old. For many people in the USA, their hearing goes in their 60’s, then their eyesight but these people in their hundreds can still hear and see pretty well. Loud noises and music make many lose their hearing which they do not have to worry about!

    No vaccines! Then stay home. Until recently manychildren died because of contagious disease. My brother had polio before the vaccine. Still in India and places.

  35. Fedor Butochnikow on October 11, 2020 at 8:56 pm

    It’s interesting how the ones fascinated with the centenarians always look at external factors and do not consider the mental attributes responsible for long life. The diet is nothing special, corn and potatoes are common just about everywhere now, the water is also well filtered in the cities. it’s the contentment of the villagers that keeps them happy and motivated, their balanced mind and simple; non-wasteful mentality has lead them to long living.

    Avoid processed foods (eat it in moderation), exercise everyday if you can, have a purpose, and maintain a positive attitude (which I need to get better at but do all the others).

    (,****.Moderation is the key to living a longer life **** Just live moderately do not consume too much of anything. Eat a variety of foods. That’s why we have so many types of foods *** for example there are at least 700 kinds of apples. *** Fruits and vegetables comes in a variety of colors. *** Prescription drugs are not the answer. And they are not good for everyone. *** So remember if it is no broke do not try to fix it. Do some good old home cooking when you can. Most pre prepared food have too much salt. To .help it last .longer, on the grocery shelved. Buy fresh as often as possible. Drink good water with minerals ..Distilled water have stripped away most minerals that are beneficial for good health. Drink it in moderation. Do not be afraid of water drink it also wash your body from head to toe often.
