Li Ching - Yuen from China lived 256 years, born in 1677 in the town of Qi Jiang Xian in the Szechuan province.

He was a martial artist and a tactical adviser and he died in 1933, having over 200 descendants during his life span and surviving 23 wives.

How did he do it?

Ching-Yuen is reported to have lived off a diet of herbs and rice wine inculding lingzhi, Goji Berries- wild ginseng, he shou wu and gotu kola.

Is there proof?

In a 1930 New York Times article, Professor Wu Chung-chieh of the University of Chengdu found Imperial Chinese government records from 1827, congratulating Li Ching-Yuen on his 150th birthday.

Further documents later congratulate him on his 200th birthday in 1877.

Please tell me he didn't get run over by a vehicle or some other accidental death, and that he died of old age. I bet he could tell a tale or two.

I was just thinking how terrible it would have been if he'd been hit by a bus!

TD I think it was you who pointed out in the bible some lived to a great age.
I disputed this but if you read up about this guy it is said his father lived to 500 years old.

Perhaps you were more right then I was.

Yeah. Maybe he was the oldest man recorded in history. But I learn there are some mysterious men practicing Yoga can live to 500 years. :?
