In the news recently, the woman who was thought to be the oldest known person on Earth died November 26, 2008 at the age of 115.She was white and lived her entire life in Indiana, where she was born.I expected her her to be Chinese. They do have that "Ancient Chinese Secret" thing going on.So I looked up a list of the last 40 people who have had the oldest person designation since 1955.No Chinese.There are only 6 Asians on the list, total. They were Japanese.There were 13 from the U.S. and 9 from the U.K.The current known oldest person is now in Portugal. Most of the rest were sprinkled around western Europe and Canada.I'm guessing Western Medicine played a role in this. I'll have to check with a NewAge wack-job to know for sure.
