Life is good and everyone alive in the world want to live long and if possible forever without dying. On the average, humans live between 70 and 80 years. Those who exceed that range and goes between 90-100+ are always celebrated and decorated with all kinds of medals in recognition of their longevity. We have had those that lived long enough like Adam = 930 years. Methuselah = 969 years and all other pre-flood humans that stayed long enough to see close to their tenth generations; but hey, that’s not where our focus is on this post because those ones have lived and died long ago.
Now we are looking at those in our modern day that could be said to be the oldest and in fact, the oldest person alive in the world today. So for us to really do that and pick the oldest person alive in the world today, we have to isolate ten oldest persons from around the world and then run through their dates of births and other statistics that could be of help for us to really determine the one who comes first as the oldest person alive in the world today.
Follow along as we take with us the search lights and embark on this interesting journey of fishing out the oldest person alive in the world and some of the secrets to their longevity that could as well be of help to us because if there are other things that humans wishes to do early in life; I doubt if death comes at all close to the list.
