Eating in moderation, drinking a glass of good wine every day and avoiding chasing women are the secrets of a long life, Belgians Pieter and Paulus Langerock, the world’s oldest living twin brothers, say.

“There isn’t much advice I can give. Don’t waste your time fooling around, don’t eat too much and don’t run after women,” said Paulus.

Born on July 8, 1913, the 102-year-old brothers share a room at their nursing home just outside the Belgian town of Ghent.

They have another three years to go to break the record of US brothers Glen and Dale Moyer, both of whom reached 105.
