Six years ago, there were only 83 of such longevity. By the end of last year, 164. Of that number, 140 were women, with the oldest one, surnamed Zhang, 108.

Most of them are in good health and said they had fought off the ravages of old age by living a simple life, remaining optimistic, having a low-fat diet, doing regular exercise and living with their family members in harmony, a survey released last week found.

compare to what the news said, i recalled in our holy book (Al-Quran) ever said, living together with families and relative can give a long age. Islam teach us to be close to our families and have a harmony living in this world. i think this is true. (of cos if using natural medical and eat good healthy food can add up the numbers :)
