She's 105 years old. We'll take it

First an 101-year-old lady proved to us that four drinks a day is totally OK, and now an 105-year-old is saying bacon is her secret to long life. Say what?

According to HLN, 105-year-old Pearl Cantrell credits her lengthy life to her love for bacon, as she eats the cured pork meat every day, which got her through "decades of hard work."

Naturally, this goes against every other study out there that says that processed meats actually decrease life span. The most recent study found that 4 pounds of uncooked bacon a day would actually kill a human, which is, admittedly, a lot of bacon.

Other studies have pointed out that eating an additional 1.7 ounces of processed meats leads to a 19 percent increase in pancreatic cancer risk.

Cantrell has, however, outlived three of her seven chidlren, endured years of physical labor working in a field, and is still up and running (and eating bacon every day). We'll just add it to our list of supposedly life-lengthening foods (including Roquefort cheese, boiled Greek coffee, and wine). The science doesn't back this up, but we can hope.

A Texas woman who is still alive and kicking at 105 says that a daily dose of bacon has helped her reach the triple digits.

“I love bacon, I eat it everyday,” Pearl Cantrell told NBC affiliate KRBC when asked the secret to her longevity. “I don’t feel as old as I am, that’s all I can say.”

Cantrell, who loves to dance, recently celebrated her 105th born day with more than 200 guests over a three-day affair.

Even Oscar Mayer had to partake in the festivities sending a Weinermobile to send her a special delivery of (wait for it) bacon.

There is some scientific research that supports Cantrell’s bacon-loving diet. A University of Zurich study published by the journal BMC Medicine in March discovered that eating little or no red meat can be a risk factor for early death. The downside: too much bacon increases the risk of bowel cancer.


Outside the Beltway

A 105-year-old woman from Richland, Texas says that the key to long life is bacon.

Pearl Cantrell’s love of bacon is so strong that the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile made a stop through town last week to wish her a happy birthday, all because she told a local news station her amazing secret.

“I love bacon, I eat it everyday,” she told a reporter for Abilene-based Big Country Homepage in April. “I don’t feel as old as I am, that’s all I can say.”

I love that the related post is about Ken Bacon dying.

Show me the birth certificate. Is she really 105?

Some people just have the most amazing goddamned genes. This reminds me of my paternal great grandfather, who lived to the age of 98, and smoked cigarettes for over 75 years. Never got lung cancer, never had problems breathing or developed a hacking cough or anything. He made himself a manhattan with dinner every night until his last week alive. He was still spry and in relatively good health, and still drove himself places into his mid 90s.

It’s hard to argue with a woman who’s lived more than a century:

Not really, it only takes one word. Outlier. Bacon is only a few notches up from toxic waste.

Eating bacon every day is the key to long life. Except, you know, for the pig.


Key to a long life is bacon, according to 105-year-old lady

Pearl Cantrell has outlived her husband and three of her seven kids and says eating the processed meat, which a recent study suggested could lead to an early death , has kept her healthy and happy.

"I love bacon, I eat it every day," she told local news station KRBC .

Pearl's 105th birthday was celebrated at her old primary school with a three-day party and over 200 guests.

A farmer for most of her life, Pearl said she also still loves dancing and sewing.

"I don't feel as old as I am, that's all I can say."

After hearing Pearl's story, US bacon manufacturer Oscar Meyer made a stop in Richland to wish her a happy birthday, and deliver a huge case of bacon.

She is a living testament to the cured meat, but research doesn't back up her claim.

As well as increasing the risk of early death, a recent study from the Harvard School of Public Health found that each 50 gram daily serving of processed meat such as bacon was associated with a 42 percent higher risk of heart disease and a 19 percent higher risk of developing diabetes.

But the research isn't all bad. A study from the University of Alabama did find that when eaten for breakfast, fatty foods like bacon get your metabolism going for the rest of the day, which then helps burn off later meals and snacks.

Pearl Cantrell of Texas said she eats bacon everyday. "I love bacon, I eat it every day," she told the Big Country Homepage.

She told local TV station KMSS that she encourages others to eat bacon too. "I want other people to eat bacon, I tell them to. My kids all eat it."

The elderly woman was treated to a ride in the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile in celebration of her long life. She was also given some bacon by the company and will be receiving more in the future.

Cantrell has lived longer than her husband and three of her seven children. Despite her age, she continues to the do tasks and activities she loves, such as sewing and dancing

Cantrell's daughter Anno told the Big Country Homepage: "She's taught us to work hard and to get up every morning and think about living. She's never thought about dying."

Cantrell recently celebrated her birthday with over 200 guests over a period of three days.

Research has showed that eating too much bacon may increase the rise of bowel cancer, but the case seems to be different for Cantrell nonetheless.


This 100-Year-Old-Woman’s Secret for Living Long: Wine, Wine, Wine!

If you ever read a story about someone who’s lived through a whole century, you probably expect them to have lived a healthy lifestyle, eating and drinking the right things. Until you read about Florence Bearse and her story of reaching 100 years old.

Florence, who lives in Bangor, Maine, was quite happy to tell everyone about her secret to her long life:

“I like my wine. Don’t take it away from me.”

OK, so Florence probably doesn’t drink wine by the gallon, but she obviously enjoys a good tipple. Her other advice when asked what she has avoided eating over the years?

Drink some wine, don’t eat bologna, and hopefully you can be celebrating your centenary year just like Florence.

Other people who have reached 100 have their own ideas about diet and living a long life. Ruth Benjamin, of Marshall, Illinois, recently celebrated her 109th birthday, and she swears by bacon. She says she eats “potatoes some way, every day,” and she loves bacon and sauerkraut. Bacon was also a favorite food of supercentarian Susannah Mushatt Jones, who reached 116 years of age. She ate four strips of bacon every morning, along with eggs and grits. Bacon seems to be a popular theme with those who live long lives, and 105-year-old Pearl Cantrell credits her longevity to “Hard work and bacon,” as she told Today.com. Her three-slice-a-day habit was so well-known that the Oscar Meyer Wienermobile stopped in her Texas hometown for her birthday one year.

Many people consider hot dogs to be bad, but not 100-year-old Helen Diekman. She said in an interview that she visited Portillo’s restaurant chain in Elgin, Illinois, three times a week to eat a hot dog with fries and a diet coke.

While these foods sound like a tasty addition to the diet, Emma Moreno’s breakfast routine isn’t for the faint-hearted. 115-year-old Emma downs three raw eggs every morning, and she has done since she was a teenager, says the New York Times, who estimate she has eaten nearly 100,000 eggs in her lifetime!

Another food for those of a steely disposition is recommended by 116-year-old Jeralean Talley – head cheese. The ingredients sound as bad as the name, being made from various parts of a pig, such as the head, heart and feet. This concoction is made into a jellied loaf served cold or at room temperature.

Wine and bacon sound like a great way to eat yourself to a long life, but I’m not so sure about the head cheese, hot dogs or raw eggs!

100-Year-Old Woman Says Eating Hot Dogs 3 Times A Week is the Secret to A Long Life

It's been quite the year for 100-year-olds (or even 95-year-olds) to reveal their secrets to living such a long life. It seemed like we'd heard it all&mdashmaking this soup, being positive, and even eating bacon&mdashuntil Helen Diekman, who passed away this week at the age of 100, went and shocked us all.

Yeah, we weren't expecting that either, especially since we know what's in a hot dog. But Helen could not be swayed from her devotion to the ballpark staple, saying in a Daily Herald interview that she visited Portillo's, a restaurant chain in Elgin, Illinois, three times a week to eat a hot dog with everything (without hot peppers), fries, and a Diet Coke.

And yes, her 100th birthday celebration was at Portillo's, with photographer Catie Scott on hand to capture it in all its hot dog glory.

Helen knows her other daily habits likely paid a role in her longevity, though. "I go to bed early, and I eat good," she said. "Of course I go to church. And I have a lot of friends."

Sounds like she had all of these tips in her back pocket.

While we're not so sure we're going to go scarf down some dogs thrice weekly, we may or may not indulge in one this weekend. You know, for Helen.


104-Year-Old Woman Says Lots of Diet Coke Is the Key to a Long Life

If you're going to live to 104, you might as well do it in style. Theresa Rowley of Grand Rapids, Michigan, just celebrated another birthday on January 1, 2018 &mdash and she's sharing her secret to longevity: drinking lots and lots of Diet Coke.

The Sentinel Pointe Retirement Community resident say she consumes at least one can a day, and has no intentions of slowing down.

"I drink it because I like it," the centenarian told WZZM. "I'm going shopping Wednesday, and I need more Diet Coke. I have a bag full of empty Diet Coke cans that I need to return to buy more Diet Coke."

Born in Illinois in 1914 &mdash a whole 68 years before the soda's debut &mdash Rowley lived in North Dakota before settling in Michigan. She's stayed in the same retirement community for the past 15 years, and celebrated her birthday there on Tuesday with the other members.

"When I was 100, I thought I'd never be 104," she said. "Then I turn 101, and nothing happens . Here I am 104, and still nothing happens." Nothing except for Diet Coke, that is.

While consuming the occasional Diet Coke won't hurt you, Jaclyn London, MS, RD, CDN, Nutrition Director at the Good Housekeeping Institute, doesn't recommend starting a diet soda habit if you aren't sipping it already. But just like any food or beverage, everything is okay in moderation.

"Scientific consensus has yet to find a direct, indisputable link between diet beverages and harmful health effects," she says. "On the flip side, calories from added sugars &mdash especially those found in sugary beverages like regular soda, juice, and even coffee drinks &mdash are linked to a slew of chronic diseases as well as obesity. Bottom line: If your current eating pattern works for you &mdash and helps you get to 104 years on the planet &mdash keep it up!"


This 110-Year-Old Woman Crushed 3 Beers and a Scotch Every Day

Remember when the world&aposs oldest woman said sushi and naps were the key to a long life? Well, there&aposs another centenarian with a much more lively take on the fountain of youth: Agnes "Aggie" Fenton, who reached the big 110 on Saturday, says her daily drinking habit was what got her this far down the road, NorthJersey.com reports.

Fenton said she enjoyed three beers and a shot of scotch every day for almost 70 years. If you want to get technical about it, actually, it was Miller High Life and Johnnie Walker Blue Label. (Is Your Two Buck Chuck Habit Hurting Your Health?)

Shockingly, Fenton shares that she actually received the three-beer-a-day advice from a doctor, after having a benign tumor removed many years ago (miraculously, her only serious health problem to date). While she had to put the drinking habit behind her (her caregivers don&apost want her to have alcohol because she eats less now), she also reports reading the newspaper and listening to the radio daily, saying her prayers, and sleeping a lot. And, in case you were wondering, her favorite foods are chicken wings, green beans, and sweet potatoes (literally, same Aggie). (Plus, find out Why Life Expectancy is Longer for Women Worldwide.)

Since so few make it to the uber-exclusive "supercentenarian" club (roughly one in every 10 million people lives to 110 or older), it&aposs impossible to know for sure what&aposs really responsible for the extraordinary good health, but studies show that centenarians have a few characteristics in common-they are rarely obese or have a history of smoking, and may have an ability to handle stress better than the majority of people. And of course, genetics and family history are also huge factors. (Want to join the club? See these 3 Bad Habits That&aposll Ruin Your Future Health).

"Each of our centenarians has their different secrets," said Stacy Andersen, a project manager with Boston University&aposs New England Centenarian Study, which Fenton has participated in for the past five years. "If Agnes feels hers is alcohol, maybe it is, but certainly we don&apost find that to be consistent across all our centenarians."

In other words, you may not want to dash to the liquor store just yet. The chicken wings, green beans, and sweet potatoes, though, we&aposre happy to start stocking up on.
