119-year-old Turkish grandma says organic food is the secret to long life

Turkey, Hizan, Bitlis province

SOT, Journalist, (Turkish): "How many children do you have?"

SOT, Asiye Sutlu (Turkish): "I have nine children."

Turkish grandmother Asiye Sutlu, who claims to be one of the world's oldest people, celebrated her 119th birthday surrounded by her beloved family members in her house in the Hizan district of the southeastern Turkish province of Bitlis, Wednesday.

Confined to her bed, Asiye Sutlu managed to sit up to blow the candles out of her chocolate birthday cake, surrounded by her family and social workers. Sutlu insists that the secret to her long life is the organic food she grew up eating.

Asiye Sutlu would take the title of the oldest person on Earth but unfortunately, there was no document proving her date of birth at the time. Her recently issued ID card states that Sutlu was born on April 17, 1899.

Sutlu has been widowed for 45 years, losing her husband when she was at the age of 73. She has nine children, 41 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren and is cared for by her eldest son Dursan and her daughter-in-law Zinnet.

On account of her advanced years, Asiye Sutlu suffers from some health issues such as high blood pressure, an increased blood sugar level and difficulties with her hearing, "We take her to the hospital in Tatvan every week," stated daughter-in-law Zinnet Sutlu.

Asiye Sutlu de la provincia turca de Bitlis afirma ser la mujer más longeva del mundo. Este martes cumplió 119 años y celebró su cumpleaños con sus familiares en casa.

Asiye Sutlu pudo soplar las velas de su pastel de cumpleaños de chocolate, celebrando la fiesta rodeada de su familia y de los trabajadores sociales. Sutlu insiste en que el secreto de su larga vida es la comida orgánica.

Si Sutli es la mujer viva más longeva del mundo, es algo que aún no ha sido verificado por organismos internacionales. Sin embargo, según el documento de identidad, Sutlu nació el 17 de abril del 1899. La mujer perdió a su marido cuando tenía 73 años. Sutlu tiene actualmente 41 nietos y 28 bisnietos.

Asiye Sutlu tiene problemas de salud tales como diabetes y hipertensión. "La llevamos al hospital en Tatvan todas las semanas", dijo la nuera Zinnet Sutlu.
