In today's news, it was written that Emma Morano is 117 years old. She has followed the same routine for around 90 years -- three eggs per day (two raw, one cooked), fresh Italian pasta and a dish of raw meat. Morano also holds the record for the world’s oldest living woman and is six years younger than the oldest person to ever live - Jeanne Calment of France, who lived to be122 years and 164 days, according to the Guinness Book of World Records.
I love meat and as a kid, I loved to sneak a glob of raw hamburger. Raw meat is not often thought of as healthy or good for you. But, Morano seems to think otherwise. Morano probably eats carpaccio which is a raw beef dish eaten in Italy... a kind of steak tartare considered a delicacy.
In many places, in the world, people eat raw meat or fish. Its known that Labrador Inuit were "the greatest raw-meat eaters of the whole Eskimo world. And, who doesn't like sushi, right?
Then there is the Atkins diet of mostly meat for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As much as I like meat, the brainy gourmet is not recommending any such diet to anyone; you should eat what you like (a balanced diet is best), and what you can afford and or what your doctor recommends.
