Lessons of 107 Birthdays:Don’t Exercise, Eat Butter, & Avoid Medicine

Quote:Mrs. Koo was born in Tianjin in the year Theodore Roosevelt began his second term and the Russo-Japanese War ended. Her first husband, also a Chinese diplomat, was posted to Manila at the beginning of World War II and was arrested and eventually executed by the Japanese. Mrs. Koo and her daughters survived. She worked at the United Nations and married Dr. Koo in 1959.

“Somebody asked her the secret of long life,” said Ying-Ying Yuan, a step-granddaughter of Mrs. Koo. “She said, ‘No exercise, eat as much butter as you like and never look backwards.’”

Shirley Young said her mother also likes pork bellies, “especially the hot part, but she doesn’t overdo anything.”

“And she doesn’t take any medicine,” she said. “When doctors give her medicine, she usually hides it, or when she takes something, she takes half a pill. People keep on giving her Chinese herbs, things like that. She never takes them.”
