Οι γηραιότεροι δίδυμοι του κόσμου αποκαλύπτουν το μυστικό μακροζωίας

The world's oldest living twin brothers, Paulus (L) and Pieter Langerock from Belgium, 102, toast while sitting in their living room at the Ter Venne care home in Sint-Martens-Latem, Belgium, August 11, 2015. Born on July 8 1913, they never married and until this day sleep side by side in the same room. Eating in moderation, drinking a glass of good wine every day and avoiding chasing women are the secrets of a long life, Belgians Pieter and Paulus Langerock, the world's oldest living twin brothers, say. The brothers have lived together for most of their lives and until this day barely leave each other's side, sharing a room at their nursing home just outside the Belgian town of Ghent.

Τρώγοντας λιτά, πίνοντας ένα ποτήρι καλό κρασί καθημερινά και αποφεύγοντας το κυνήγι γυναικών, οι Pieter και Paulus Langerock κατάφεραν και ξεπέρασαν τα 100. Οι δυο γλυκύτατοι αυτοί Βέλγοι, είναι οι γηραιότεροι δίδυμοι του κόσμου και αποκάλυψαν το μυστικό της μακροζωίας τους στο Reuters.

Τα αδέλφια, γεννήθηκαν στις 8 Ιουλίου του 1913 και έχουν ζήσει το μεγαλύτερο μέρος της ζωής τους μαζί-σήμερα σπάνια αποχωρίζεται ο ένας τον άλλο. Οι δυο υπερήλικες, στα 102 τους χρόνια, μοιράζονται ένα δωμάτιο σε γηροκομείο στη βελγική πόλη  Ghent.

«Δεν έχω να δώσω κάποια βαρύγδουπη συμβουλή. Μην σπαταλάτε το χρόνο σας δεξιά και αριστερά, μη τρώτε πολύ και μη τρέχετε πίσω από γυναίκες», λέει ο Paulus. Τα δυο αδέλφια, απολαμβάνουν καθημερινά ένα ποτήρι κρασί: «Προτιμούμε ένα καλής ποιότητας Bordeaux», αναφέρει ο ίδιος. Τα αδέλφια δεν παντρεύτηκαν ποτέ, μη εγκρίνοντας ο ένας τις επιλογές του άλλου αναφορικά με το άλλο φύλο.

«Ναι, ο Paulus είναι ο καλύτερός μου φίλος. Είμαστε πάντα μαζί», αναφέρει ο Pieter. «Όταν είμασταν 85 ετών, πήγαμε στο γιατρό ο οποίος μας είπε ‘μη περιμένετε να ζήσετε μέχρι τα 100’. Λοιπόν, ποτέ δεν ήθελα να ζήσω τόσο πολύ», λέει με αφοπλιστική ειλικρίνεια ο Paulus.
