World’s oldest woman dies

Susannah Mushatt Jones has died in New York, aged 116.

She gave a number of different explanations for her longevity and we’ve looked at two of them: sleep and bacon. We rated the former a lot more likely than the latter.

Susannah will be mourned by a remarkable 100 nieces and nephews, to whom she was known as ‘T’ (‘auntie’).

The oldest woman in the world is now Italian Emma Morano. Her secret? Raw eggs.
