How old is the Pope???

Newly elected Pope Francis had part of a lung removed as a teenager, according to the Vatican, but it shouldn't be a significant health issue for him now, experts say.

The pontiff, 76, had part his lung removed to treat an infection he had about 40 decades ago, according to NBC News. At that time, it was more common to treat infections, such as tuberculosis, this way because antibiotics were not widely used.

It is certainly true that 40 decades ago antibiotics were not widely used, so they got that part right.

Do the math. 1 decade = 1.5 years, obviously.
