With 130 years oldest human being on earth

sakhan-dosova-391138030Amazing mum-of-10 Sakhan Dosova is said to be the world’s oldest living human – outdoing her nearest rival by 16 years. She is set to celebrate her 130th birthday on Friday without ever having visited a doctor or taken any medicine. And Sakhan puts her health down to cottage cheese and a sense of humour. She said: “I don’t have any special secret. I’ve never taken pills and if I was ill, I used granny’s remedies to cure me. “I have never eaten sweets. I don’t like them. But I love kurt, a salty dried cottage cheese, and ground wheat.” Sakhan Dosova Sakhan was discovered during a census in Karaganda, Kazakhstan. Researchers were amazed to find she appeared on Stalin’s first census in 1926 aged 47. Her date of birth is said to be March 27, 1879, shown on her Soviet era passport and Kazakhstan identity card. Her granddaughter Gaukhar Kanieva, 42, said: “She is a very cheerful woman. We think laughter and her good mood helped her live so long.” Karaganda statistics expert Nailya Dosayeva said there was no doubt Sakhan was nearing 130: “She has an old passport and documents which are genuine, and based on these we can judge her age as being correct.”
