Eggs and the oldest person in the world!
Emma Morano is the oldest person on the planet, and has the paper work to prove it. Emma has lived in three different centuries, that is, she is the last person alive, who was born in the 1800’s. Emma was born November 29th 1899, in the Piedmont region of Italy, when King Umberto reigned. At 117 years old, Emma Morano still has a sense of humor and a keen wit and a love for eggs.
Her doctor says she must have great genetic makeup because he believes she is doing everything wrong. Emma eats three eggs each day, two raw and one fried egg with minced meat. She disagrees with her doctor and says her diet is one reason she has outlived everyone else on the planet. The other reason she gives for her longevity, is her escape from an awful marriage. An evil spouse will definitely shorten anyone’s life or make you wish it was shorter.
So back to Emma’s secret to long life, when Emma was a teenager, a doctor suggested that she eat raw eggs to combat her anemia. You see Emma was like most everyone else, she was sick and headed for a short disease filled life, but someone suggested she eat eggs, something that the Bible says is very good.  She has followed a stringent diet of two raw eggs, one cooked egg, a little minced meat and pasta for the past 90 years.
Carlo Bava, Emma’s doctor, said she has perfect cholesterol and glucose levels. “She is in a great state of health and mind,” he said. “The fact that she has never had much variety in her diet is proof that she is so well-preserved thanks to genetics.” Once again a medical doctor believes that genetics are the answer to long life. God says that long life is not found in genetics, which are out of your control, long life is found in lifestyle, which we can improve by simply listening to and following God’s advice, Emma is the living proof.
Deuteronomy 32:45b-47a “Take to heart all the words I have solemnly declared to you this day, so that you may command your children to obey carefully all the words of this law. 47 They are not just idle words for you—they are your life. By them you will live long”
God says that eggs are good! A number of years ago, I started a new habit of making myself a health smoothie for breakfast each morning. I don’t know about you, but I often forget to take my vitamins and I don’t really like taking pills anyway. So, this was a way to make it less disagreeable and get it all done at once. I have a theory, if I don’t like doing it, eventually I will quit. So, when I make my health smoothies I put everything in I need for the day.
- I start with two raw eggs, which provide the highest quality protein money can buy.
- I then add Dr. Wallach’s Ultimate Classic vitamin/mineral mix, so I get all my maintenance essentials.
- Then I add an orange or mixed frozen berries with 6000 mg. of vitamin C to provide optimum antioxidants, which boost my immune system. 
- I add one pack of Knox gelatin, to keep my joints in great shape. 
- I put in a spoonful of honey for taste and to lower the pH level. Science has proved that our bodies and our immune systems function much better with a low pH level. Bacteria cannot live in a low pH environment. 
- Finally, I add goats milk for taste and high quality calcium for my bones and teeth.
- I put it all in my Nutra Bullet and turn it into a smoothie.
Does it work? My joints feel great, I can still do 50 push-ups without stopping, I can’t remember the last time I had a cold or the flue, I feel great.
What about raw eggs?
I have a friend who is a doctor, and generally likes natural remedies. When he heard I ate raw eggs, he nearly had a heart attack. He told me in no uncertain terms that I was playing Russian roulette with those raw eggs. He said that eventually I would get one of those eggs with salmonella poising and I would be a goner. Maybe he is right, but Emma Morano has been doing it for over 90 years; either she is incredibly lucky or those raw eggs have kept her free from disease. I believe the latter, I believe a good immune system can handle the extremely rare bacteria or virus that might end up on a raw egg. 
Emma’s other secret!
The other secret to Emma’s long life: separating from her husband in 1938, decades before divorce was even legal in Italy. Her one true love was a boy killed during World War I, and she did not intend to marry anyone else. Emma eventually married Giovanni Martinuzzi after he forced her to do so, “He said, ‘If you’re lucky, you marry me, or I’ll kill you.“ The New York Times quotes Emma, “I didn’t want to be dominated by anyone.” A year after her 6-month-old child died, she left Martinuzzi. 
Once again we have a centenarian who eats red meat and eggs and her cholesterol is fine, just like the Bible says it will be. She does not have Alzheimers, her attitude is great, she has not allowed the world to stress her out, even though she lived through two world wars and an abusive husband. Following God’s advice concerning health and wellness will always produce the best results. But what if I don’t perfectly follow everything the Bible teaches about long life? What if Emma has a bad habit known to produce ill health?
Emma’s bad habit.
According to her local newspaper “despite her age, Emma has a childlike love of cookies. “She particularly loves Savoiardi cookies and hides them behind her pillow so no one will eat them,” Bava said of the traditional Italian treat, also known as ladyfingers.
Almost all the really old people we have studied have one bad habit that no one would recommend. Jeanne Calment lived to the ripe old age of 122, she smoked cigarettes most of her life. 147-year-old Mbah Gotho also smokes and Emma Morano eats cookies. All that to say this; anything done in moderation probably won’t kill you. What will kill you is to be so serious about doing everything just right that you get sick from stress. There is a popular blog site called “Eat the damn cake”. It is a reaction to the militant, “We have to do everything perfect people”, you know the ones; those people who are, “doing everything right”, but dying from stress.
It is not any one thing that you do or don’t do that will ensure long life or kill you. It is everything, including your attitude. God says not to be anxious about anything (Philippians 4:7). I believe that the closer you get to what God says to do, or don’t do, the better life will be for you. But if you obsess over everything, you will either quit the whole thing, or you will stress yourself into a grave. Emma obviously is not stressing herself.
I was talking to a friend the other day, this friend looks much younger that he is. I asked him what his secret was, he said, “I have a very stress free life and I intend to keep it that way”.
It is stressful for you, and those you love, to always turn down food you don’t normally eat when you are with friends and family. Nobody likes the person who watches everyone else eat birthday cake at someone’s party. Eat the cake, just don’t eat the whole thing yourself.
Too much of anything will kill you, so here is a must see video my daughter Leah sent me, Leah has a Master of Science degree in Public Health. I hope you enjoy this, I think every person on the planet should watch it and every young student should be required to see it. This is something people are getting way too much of. Unfortunately, most don’t know how much they are eating and what life shortening diseases it causes. Click on this link and watch this riveting video. http://topdocumentaryfilms.com/secrets-sugar/
Do I really want to live to be 117?
When I started researching Emma Morano, my wife Shary asked how she looked. I laughed and said, “not that great for a sixty year old, actually, she looks terrible”, but for someone who is 117 she looks awesome. Someone always says to me, “I don’t want to live that long”. Then I ask them, “If you could look and feel like a healthy seventy year old at 100? If you could live disease free for over one hundred years, then would you want to live that long?” The answer is always yes. God’s intention is for you to have life, and have it abundantly, all of your days.
Deuteronomy 33:25 The bolts of your gates will be iron and bronze, and your strength will equal your days.
Deuteronomy 34:7 Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone.
Moses lived 120 years, and right up to his death he was still healthy and strong. So if you want to live a long healthy productive life, free from physical pain and sickness, you will want to follow in the footsteps of people who have already done it. You don’t have to eat raw eggs, but you will probably have to eat some form of eggs. You will also need to limit your stress. It is OK to get yourself away from abusers, Jesus did it. Once, when the Pharisees tried to stone Jesus, he alluded the. Another time they tried to throw him off a cliff and he got away. Finally, you will have to avoid eating too much of anything, especially products containing sugar or other refined, highly processed foods. God does not want you sick anymore than you do. He loves you, and wants only the best for you, like any earthly father would.
Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 5:19
Our purpose for writing each week is to obey Matthew 5:19, providing you with Biblical advice on the care and feeding of your body. We do it because this advice is so rare. We also do it, because we see thousands of good Christians, whose lives have been cut short, simply because they were never taught what the Word of God and the Law of God had to say about health and wellness.
If you believe God knows best, join us and the Wellness Gospel team; register for our weekly newsletter, then spread the word by sharing this with your friends on social media and may God richly bless you.
