Advice from people 110 and older for ‘a long and happy life’

Longevity experts Héctor García and Francesc Miralles studied the longest-living people in the world to write “Ikigai: The Japanese Secret to a Long and Happy Life.”

While researching, they learned that there are around 300 to 450 people in the world who are aged 110 and older. These people are often referred to as supercentenarians.

“They aren’t superheroes, but we could see them as such for having spent far more time on this planet than the average life expectancy would predict,” wrote García and Miralles. “A healthy and purposeful life could help us join their ranks.”

García and Miralles went on to compile quotes from interviews they found with supercentenarians and devoted an entire chapter in their book to the wise advice.

Here’s what three of the supercentenarians in García and Miralles’ book suggest for living a long and happy life.

‘Everything’s fine.’

Jeanne Calment lived 122 years, and earned the title of the world’s oldest person on record. She was born in the south of France in 1875 and lived a pretty low-stress life as a wealthy woman.

Calment rode a bike up until she turned 100 and lived on her own until she was 110, according to García and Miralles. She had “absolutely nothing to do except to take care of [herself], to visit France and have social activities,” Jean-Marie Robine, an expert demographer who studies the links between health and longevity, who knew Calment, told CNBC Make It.

Calment’s sense of humor may have been one of her best longevity secrets, say García and Miralles. During an interview on her 120th birthday, she said, “I see badly, I hear badly, and I feel bad, but everything’s fine.”

Keep your mind and your body busy and ‘you’ll be here a long time.’

Port Colborne mom credits Port Colborne Hospital site for saving daughter’s life

Port Colborne resident Cheryl Campbell voted in an advanced referendum poll on Friday to stop the privitization of public health care.

Right are volunteers Heather Kelley and Ron Walker.

Cheryl Campbell doesn’t want to see the privatization of health care in Ontario, nor does she want Port Colborne’s urgent care centre to close.

Campbell explained her child, who is now a healthy 25-year-old, was diagnosed with epilepsy and likely wouldn’t have survived without quick access to health care.

“I have a daughter, and I don’t think I would have a daughter now if it wasn’t for the Port Colborne hospital,” she said.

Having access to nearby health care is important to Campbell. That’s why she stopped to vote in an advanced poll for a provincewide community referendum on Friday, May 19, at the Port Colborne Farmers’ Market.

The Ontario Health Coalition is responding to Bill 60 with the referendum to convince the provincial government not to privatize some health care services under what is known as the Your Health Act.

The bill will allow private clinics to provide services, including cataract surgeries, MRIs, CT scans, and hip and knee replacements. The bill has been passed in the legislature but is awaiting Royal assent.

The Niagara Health Coalition (NHC) hosted advanced polls at sites across Niagara leading up to the May 26 and 27 referendums.

“What we’re trying to do with the referendum is raise people’s awareness of what is going on and what the dangers are,” said NHC chair Sue Hotte. “They have an opportunity to say, yeah, you know, ‘I think private clinics are great’, or they can say no, ‘I value our public health care, and I want to hang on to that.’”

Niagara residents have a second question on their ballots, asking if they want current services maintained at Niagara Health, Hotel Dieu Shaver, and West Lincoln Memorial Hospital.

Niagara Centre MPP Jeff Burch said the public has the right to access public health care, but

Pro Life Alberta says Smith is making an enemy of pro-lifers

Pro Life Alberta says the Alberta government must stop funding abortions after Premier Danielle Smith announced that a re-elected UCP government would not change existing funding for medical services.

On Tuesday, Smith announced that her government would not de-list any medical services or prescriptions now covered by Alberta health insurance “without exception.”

Pro Life Alberta says Smith’s statement means about 12,000 babies will die from abortion in 2023, just as the year before, at taxpayers’ expense. 

“Enough is enough already. Abortion is not healthcare. And Albertans shouldn’t be footing the bill for an elective — and highly unregulated — ‘procedure’ that ends the life of a child in the womb,” the party says.

“The more who learn the ugly truth about abortion the more who will stand up and say ‘enough-is-enough!’” 

Smith’s healthcare spending promise counters weeks of NDP attacks saying the premier plans to privatize healthcare. One NDP advertisement claims the premier plans to start charging Albertans for visits to the family doctor — a claim the premier has refuted. 

Pro Life Alberta says the NDP will continue to attack Smith on healthcare spending. Meanwhile, her statements make an enemy of her friends in the pro-life movement, it says.

“Unless Danielle Smith comes out with some kind of policy that will advocate for Alberta’s preborn, Danielle Smith is forcing the hand of pro-life Albertans to oppose her leadership.”

“To sacrifice the preborn for political power is not worth the price.”

Pro Life Alberta is a registered political party that typically does not run candidates in provincial elections. Rather, it uses its status to draw attention to the pro-life movement. 

Canada currently has no laws restricting abortion at any stage of a woman’s pregnancy.

Earlier this year, the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) released statistics confirming 87,485 induced abortions
