Britain's oldest man aged 110 credits 'magic potion from India' for longevity
London, November 3 (ANI): Britain's oldest man, who will turn 110 on Sunday, has revealed that his longevity isn't entirely down to his strict vegetarian diet or his favourite tipple - gin.
The Reverend Reg Dean, who has lived to see 26 prime ministers, received seven telegrams from the Queen and was alive when the Wright brothers piloted the first powered plane in 1903, instead attributes it to a 'mysterious brown-looking' elixir of life given to him by a doctor when he was an army chaplain in India.
'He said to me, "I have concocted a drink that will make you live for ever", or something like that, and would I like to take it?" the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
"Well I'm very naive, I can't say no, so I drank it and here I am," he said.
Dean was born on November 4, 1902, in Tunstall, Staffordshire.
In 1958, he became a teacher and later served as minister at the United Reformed Churches in Wirksworth and Matlock, before retiring 29 years ago, aged 80.
Dean, who received telegrams to mark his 100th and 105th birthdays and one every year since, says he wants to live until he is 120. The world's oldest living man, aged 115, is Jiroemon Kimura from Japan. (ANI)
