A 100-year-old man from Ohio, United States proved that age is just a number as he continues to practice his profession as a doctor despite his age.
Doctor Howard Tucker, a neurologist, holds a title from Guinness World Record for being the world's oldest practicing doctor in February 2021 and he still holds the award until now.
Dr. Tucker shared that he has no plan to retire and as a matter of fact he still works full-time from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. on weekdays.
"I regard this Guinness World Records title as a singular honor and look upon it as another achievement in a long, satisfying and happy life," Tucker said to Guinness.
According to the centenarian, his 89-year-old wife Sue is a psychoanalyst and still practices her profession now.
"Gosh, no! I believe retirement is the enemy of longevity. Even in my younger years, I never once contemplated retirement," Tucker added.
Meanwhile, Dr. Tucker shared that the secret of longevity is having good nutrition and moderation of alcohol. (KBAPI)
