Secret to long life found in 115-year-old woman's blood - NaturalNews.com: (NaturalNews) In 2005, 115-year-old Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper passed away to old age healthy and disease-free. At the time of her death, Schipper became the oldest person to have her body donated to science. Longevity researchers were interested in understanding why a healthy person suddenly dies of old age.
