Secret to long life, avoiding men says 109- year-old woman​

What is the real secret to a long life?

Jessie Gallan, who was once Scotland’s oldest living person at 109 said the secret to living a long life is to “eat your porridge and avoid men,” according to The Daily Mail.

Gallan went on to say that men are “more trouble than they are worth” and as a result, she never married.

Gallan also credits eating porridge and exercising for her longevity.


“I also made sure that I got plenty of exercise, eat a nice warm bowl of porridge every morning and have never gotten married, she told The Daily Mail. “I always worked hard and seldom would I ever take a holiday. I left home when I was 13 and began a job milking cows. I always had good jobs with very nice people. It’s amazing to see how completely different the world is now from the one I grew up in.”

She gave the advice years ago. Gallan died in a nursing home in Scotland in March 2015.
