114-Year-Old Says He's Never Been Sick a Day in His Life


You could say 114-year-old Bernando LaPallo was made to last. "My mother, 105, she went to sleep. My grandmother, 107, she went to sleep. My father, 91, he went to sleep," LaPallo told KNXV.

"Everybody asks, 'What's your secret?' I say obedience and moderation," LaPallo said. Though the Arizona climate could be helping him now, he lived in New York for 90 years, and told Newsy's partners at KNXV he has never been sick.

He recommended plenty of garlic, honey, cinnamon and chocolate. And another interesting secret to longevity ... he says his father told him to put olive oil on the bottom of your feet so you don't "rust." He also boils his water before drinking it.
