152 year old man dies!

If you're interested in living a long, youthful, healthy and vibrant life this my be of interest!

Westminster Abbey is the most famous church in England.

It was started in 170 A.D. That means, this famous church is now 1,835 years old. It is a work of architectural genius, a place of daily worship and the burial place of kings, statesmen, poets, scientists, warriors and musicians.

This Church Has A Secret
Here's the story:

Inside this church are vaults and monuments of many of the most famous and powerful people on earth. However, one of the smallest burial places in that church is the final resting place of the oldest person who ever lived.

His name was Thomas Parr and he was born in the County of Shropshire, England in 1483 A.D. And, he lived until November, 1635 A.D. That means...
...He Lived 152 Years!

Not only did Thomas Parr live a very long life, he also lived a very healthy, vigorous and active life. He married his first wife when he was 80-years old. He married again in 1605 at the age of 122. He fathered his first child when he was over 130 years old.

After Parr's death, an English doctor named William Harvey (he discovered the circulation of blood) was hired by King Charles to perform an autopsy to find out why Thomas Parr lived so long.

Dr. Harvey's autopsy report was written in Latin and, it has been preserved to this very day in case anybody wants to read it. It says all of Parr's organs were in perfect condition and, his colon was as clean and healthy as that of a child.
so maybe good to research and use colon detox products.

Thomas Parr did not live to be 152. Historians and physicians have shown that he was likely under the age of 70 when he died, and that the birth date of 1483 was likely that of his grandfather. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Old_Tom_Parr
