Imich was a Polish-born American chemist and parapsychologist who emigrated to the United States in 1951. Throughout his life he had always enjoyed good health, which he believed was the reason he had lived so long.
Some of his tips to leading a long life include a healthy diet, regular exercise or sport, not smoking or drinking alcohol and his genes. Imich came from a family with ancestors who all lived to an old age.
The current oldest man is Japanese-born Sakari Momoi, born one day after Imich on February 5, 1903.
