According to statistics, the average life expectancy of women in the world is 71 years. But there are exceptions in everything. It happens that people die at a young age, and there are those who have stepped over a 100-year milestone. Three of the oldest women in the world live on Earth for the second century, it is curious that they are all from the same country. Guess which one?
The oldest woman in the world was born on June 1, 1889, in 2018 she turned 129 years old. Grandmother is a native resident of the village of Bratskoye (Chechen Republic, Nadterechny District).
Koku's life is complicated and, according to her, unhappy. In her younger years, when all the girls ran to the dances, she went in for the business: garden, field work, chickens and cows. “There was no time to sit down,” recalls the grandmother. She survived four wars: civil, World War II and two Chechen. In 1944, the whole family was deported from the country by order of Stalin to Kazakhstan. There she met her husband, whom she does not want to recall because of his nasty temper.
Istambulova gave birth to three children. The first son died at the age of six, the second, barely born. Only daughter Tamara presented her grandchildren and died in 2013, having lived to 104 years.
Now my grandmother has 6 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren. In 2014, the Chechen authorities presented the long-living woman with a new house, where she lives to this day. The old woman feels well, only her vision fails - she almost stopped seeing.
Koku considers proper nutrition and physical labor to be the reasons for his longevity. All her life she drinks a lot of milk, tea with thyme and practically does not consume meat products.
Bisembeeva Tanzilya Nasihanovna
Tanzilya Nasihanovna was born in the village of Islamgazy of the Astrakhan Region. She was born on March 14, 1986.
Tanzily life is rich. She first married before World War II. But, unfortunately, the husband died at the front, and the first child died in infancy. When the war ended, Tanzile was already 49 years old.
A few years later she remarried. At age 53 she gave birth to a son. In 55 years, the second child was born, and in 57 she already nursed the third. At the moment, the long-liver already has 10 grandchildren, 24 great-grandchildren and 2 great-great-grandsons.
All family members are proud of their grandmother and say that they have helped her to live kindness and a sense of humor to such an old age. And Tanzilya herself claims that only activity, complete cessation of smoking, alcohol and the use of exclusively natural homemade products - this is the secret of a long life.
Tanzilya appeared in the Russian Book of Records as the most elderly resident of the country, but recently her title was transferred to Nana Shaova, who was able to confirm with documents that she was a little older than her rival.
Shaova Nanu Tsukovna
Another oldest resident of the world was born July 15, 1890. Date of birth was previously listed as approximate, because There were no birth certificates at all and the data was confirmed through friends and acquaintances.
Nana spent her entire happy life in the village of Zayukovo (Baksan district, Kabardino-Balkaria). The hardest time was in the years of the Second World War. Grandma often remembers how she had to dig trenches and collect the bodies of the dead. In addition, her first husband died in the war.
From her second husband, Nanu Tsukovna gave birth to five children. He died in 1982 at the age of 106 years. The long-liver with warmth recalls family life with Zaramuk.
Now Nana has 8 children, 19 grandchildren, 33 great-grandsons and 5 great-great-grandsons. She considers the loving big family to be the main secret of her longevity. The second secret is the mountain air, and the third is sweet tea with sweets.
Nanu Shaova is listed in the Russian Book of Records as the oldest resident of the country.
For 2018, the three oldest women in the world are from Russia. I want to believe that 129 years is not the limit, and every person will be able to easily cross the century border with ease.
