World’s Oldest Man Dies at 112
A Japanese man who was recently recognized by Guinness World Records as the world’s oldest living man died this week at the age of 112. In an interview with Guinness last summer, Yasutaro Koide revealed that his secret to longevity was to avoid smoking and drinking and to live with joy. The super-centenarian, a former tailor, died of heart failure in Nagoya, Japan. The oldest living woman recognized by Guinness is Susannah Mushatt Jones of Brooklyn, New York. At 116, she is one of only two living women in the world born in the 1800s.
