This 108-Year-Old Woman Says The Key To Health Is Avoiding Men

Jessie Gallan, the oldest woman in Scotland, celebrated her 108th birthday on January 2. Gallan was born on a farm, in a tiny two-room cottage, and then went on to work at a hotel that was visited by the Queen and the Queen Mother during her time on staff there. Her tip to lead such a long, healthy life has nothing to do with kale or anti-aging cream. She told the Daily Mail, “My secret to a long life has been staying away from men. They’re just more trouble than they’re worth.” Oh, and porridge. “I also made sure that I got plenty of exercise, eat a nice warm bowl of porridge every morning and have never gotten married.” Great tip, Jessie!
