Japanese police have arrested a 73-year-old man who reportedly kept his disabled son in a small wooden cage for more than 20 years.
Nonaka was born on July 25, 1905, just months before Albert Einstein published his famous special theory of relativity and more than a year before the Wright Brothers' first demonstration of powered flight.
Nonaka married in 1931 and had five children, he outlived his wife and two of their offsprings. He took the title after the death of Spaniard Francisco Olivera, who was 113.
"He needs a wheelchair to move, but he is in good condition", she added. "He loves eating any kinds of candies ― Japanese or Western style", she said, according to The Telegraph.Читайте также: Amazon, Twitter and Moviepass — Business Briefs
Nonaka lives with his family, which manages a hot springs inn. Nonaka now enjoys spending time with his family, watching TV-especially sumo wrestling-or reading newspapers.
Nonaka had a sweet time accepting the age-old honor, mainly because he was served a cake, to which he responded, "Yum", according to Guinness.
Masazo is really fond of his pets and if doesn't like his dinner he often gives it to them, but tries to hide it from his family. While Nonaka believes his longevity is due to his likings to candies and the springs, his daughter thinks it is because he lives life stressless way.
If he doesn't want something, he'll make sure everyone knows about it, she says.
Even though Nonaka's longevity is an incredible feat, there are several people alive today who are even older - but all of them are women.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
