China's happy vegetarian turns 120

(UPI Quirks in the News Via Thomson Dialog NewsEdge)Listed in the Guinness World Records as the oldest living person, a Chinese woman has marked her 120th birthday.

Celebrating her birthday Saturday with dozens of relatives and locals in the city of Leshan, Sichuan province, Du Pinhua said she has been vegetarian for her whole life, China Daily reported Wednesday.

Locals describe Du as a tolerant and happy lady who never argues with others.

I didn't know the oldest living person was veg.

I must show this to the people that have told me that no veg lives past 60, lol. Of course we all here know it's BS. The founder of veganism was like, what, 92 or 98 when he died?

Anyways, this type of news is good because it shows that a vegetarian diet is sustainable and very healthy if done correctly.
