Misao Okawa 114-years-old is the oldest woman aliveJapanese Woman Named Oldest In The World

Misao Okawa is 114 years old, and has been named “the oldest woman alive” by Guiness World Records Wednesday.

She was given a certificate proclaiming her longevity.  She responded:  “I’m happy. I’m feeling good anyway,” Okawa, sitting in a wheelchair surrounded by relatives, told media as she closes in on her 115th birthday.

Okawa was born on March 5, 1898 and married in 1919. She had three children, two of whom — a son and a daughter — are still alive and in their 90s, Japanese media reported.  She has four grandchildren and six great-grandchildren,

Ms Okawa say she has never had any serious health problems in her life, but she did break a leg when she was much younger, at 102.

The world’s oldest living person is a 115-year-old Japanese man who lives in Kyoto, not far from Okawa’s hometown in the western part of the country, which has long been known for the longevity of its citizens.

    I noticed that this oldest living person is a very dangerous and ultimately deadly position: http://andreasmoser.wordpress.com/2013/06/18/conspiracy-against-old-people/ There must be some conspiracy against these people.
