Who was the oldest human?

A french women named Jeanne Calment lived 122 years and 164 days, making her the world’s oldest human at the time of her passing in 1997 (according to Guinness World Records). She credited her routine snacking on chocolate (among other things) for her amazing life span. Meanwhile, a Bolivian man named Carmelo Flores Laura may have surpassed Calment’s record. Government documents show that Flores was born in 1890 – which would make him older than Calment when she passed away. Flores didn’t have his original birth certificate, though, casting doubt on his true age. He died in 2014.
