Celebrating Jean Calments Day

Posted:
Olive oil for health and longevity! Olive oil for health and longevity!

February 21st is the birthday of the longest-lived human in the modern era of verified record-keeping. It is known as "Jean Calments Day". French woman Jean Calments lived from February 21st, 1875 until August 4th, 1997 - a total of 122 years and 164 days. She is known to have a fondness for olive oil and dark chocolate. Thus on her birthday every year, advocates for healthy life extension consume those products and share pictures of the celebration. Today on Wake-Up Wisconsin, Josh, Molly, and Justin drank olive oil "straight up", a practice common among long-lived populations around the Mediterranean.
