Fountain of Youth = Deprivation and Sorrow?

Morano had been married briefly before separating in her late 30s, had a son who died before turning one, and worked until she was 75. She lived in a two room apartment for the past 27 years, had not left the apartment in years, ate 3 raw eggs per day for 100 years, and usually ate pasta with raw ground beef until she stopped cooking five years ago.
No points of any significance, just two observations:
1. The article did not mention a will but I doubt she had any assets any than a few tchotchkes left in her name.
2. If eating three raw eggs and raw ground beef daily while staying housebound is the secret to longevity, count me out. I will gladly live a shorter life to enjoy cooked food and going outdoors.
