A 109-year-old woman in Scotland said that the secret to her longevity is this: Eat your porridge and avoid men. Centenarian Jessie Gallan, who never married, was born in a tiny two-room farm cottage where she slept “top-to-tail” with her five sisters and a brother on a straw mattress, reported The Daily Mail.
Gallan told the newspaper that her “secret to a long life has been staying away from men. They’re just more trouble than they’re worth.”
She noted that she also “made sure that I got plenty of exercise, eat a nice warm bowl of porridge every morning and have never gotten married.”
