Must See 03/05/2022

If you have a glass of wine every now and then, it could be helping you live longer. 

Guinness World Records has confirmed that Sister André from France is now officially the oldest person alive at 118 years. She was born on 11 February 1904. 

 Sister André, 118 has a glass of wine every day and maybe that's the secret to her long life. 

"Her glass of wine maintains her and which is perhaps her longevity secret. I don't know - I don't encourage people to drink a glass of wine everyday!" said a staff member from Sister André's care home. 

Sister André also has a sweet tooth and indulges in them every now and then. Chocolate is her guilty pleasure. So perhaps even the chocolates?

Sister André worked as a teacher, a governess and looked after children during World War II. After the war, she spent 28 years working with orphans and elderly people at a hospital before becoming a Catholic nun.
