The secret to a long life? This 111-year-old recommends eating chicken brains

CANBERRA, Australia [AP] – Australia’s oldest-ever man has a few secrets he credits to living more than 111 years — including eating chicken brains.

Retired cattle rancher Dexter Kruger told Australian Broadcasting Corp. in an interview at his nursing home in the rural Queensland state town of Roma that a weekly poultry delicacy had contributed to his longevity, The Associated Press reported. Monday marked 124 days since he turned 111, a day older than World War I veteran Jack Lockett was when he died in 2002.

“Chicken brains. You know, chickens have a head. And in there, there’s a brain. And they are delicious little things,” Kruger said. “There’s only one little bite.”

Kruger’s son said he believes his father’s Outback lifestyle is really the reason for his uncommonly long life.

Nursing home manger Melanie Calvert said Kruger, who is writing his autobiography, was “probably one of the sharpest residents here.”

“His memory is amazing for a 111-year-old,” Calvert said.

Kruger is officially the oldest-ever Australia man, according to a founder of The Australian Book of Records.

The oldest-ever verified Australian was Christina Cook, who died in 2002 aged 114 years and 148 days.
