World's oldest person celebrates 117 birthday! What's her secret?

The woman thought to be the world's oldest person celebrates her 117 birthday and apparently one of her secrets to a long life...raw eggs!
Emma Morano lives in a small town in northern Italy.

She celebrated her milestone with friends neighbors and her doctor.

Morano says her life hasn't been so nice. She worked in a factory, lost a son shortly after birth, and was one of the first people in her town to divorce an abusive husband.

She swears by her unorthodox diet of eating the same thing at the same time every day, every month.

And one of those things is two raw eggs every day. Emma says she has never eaten much fruit or vegetables.
