121 Year Old Brazilian Indian Is Worlds Oldest Person


BRAZIL ~(Huffington Post)~ The current record holder for Word’s Oldest Living Person, recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records is Georgia resident Besse Cooper, 115 years old.  See America’s lifestyle can’t be that unhealthy, right?  Wrong.  A woman from the Brazilian Amazon, aged 121 years old, has just usurped Cooper.

Maria Lucimar Pereira is a member of the Laxinawa tribe speaks only her native tribal language.  Survival International, an indigenous rights organization has taken the liberty of proclaiming Pereira’s incredible age to the world.

What’s the secret of Maria’s amazingly old age?  According to Care2.com she maintains her lifestyle by eating a diet of fresh fish, banana porridge, vegetables, and grilled meats.  She also consumes a low amount of salt, sugar and processed food.

The current record holder, Besse Cooper, has nothing to worry about, for the moment.  The Guinness Book of World Records is unmoved despite Pereira’s incredible claim.  A representative told The Huffington Post, “There’s no early-life proof of birth documentation which we require.”

The International Business Times reports that Brazilian government officers discovered Pereira’s age when performing a birth certificate check.  They are still attempting to confer with social workers on the authenticity of her birth certificate and to double check any possible mistakes.

The current record holder has a similar secret to Pereira’s, “I mind my own business and I don’t eat junk food,” she said.

Survivors International is clearly using Pereira for publicity but they still make a convincing argument concerning the modernized, industrial diet vs. the traditional one.

“It’s refreshing to see a community that has retained strong links to its ancestral land and enjoyed the undeniable benefits of this,” said Survivors International director Stephen Curry to Care2.com.
