Although some question the accuracy of it, Pravda regularly publishes photographs of people celebrating their 140th, 150th, or even 160th birthday. It is said that more people live past 100 in the Soviet regions of Georgia and Azerbaijan than anywhere else in the world.
Their lifestyle is described like this: they are early risers, hard workers, eat mostly vegetables and milk products, drink natural spring water, spend much time in the open air, always sleep on hard beds, and seldom sleep more than six hours a night.
These are the people who often live to be more than one hundred years old, but some would say, “You call that living?”
