According to the Bolivian record Carmelo Flores, aged 123 year’s, should be the world’s oldest man yet alive.
Born in 1890, the Carmelo turned 123 in 2013 according to Bolivian civil registry records. If this information is true, the man he would become the longest living human being to be recorded in civil registry. This shephard who lives in Frasquia village which is located in the mountains south of the capital La Paz, is still in good health and needs neither cane or glasses.
With three children, six grandchildren and 39 great-grandchildren, the man believes that the secret to a long life is daily walk daily and to never eat pasta or sugar.
