105-Year Old Woman Attributes Her Longevity to Eating Bacon Every Day

Bacon--it's nature's font of miracles! Pearl Cantrell of Richland Springs, Texas is 105 years old. How did she live so long? You already know the answer:

"I love bacon, I eat it everyday", says Pearl, "I don't feel as old as I am, that's all I can say", she explains.

Still feisty and full of life, Pearl has been through a lot, and has plenty of reasons to complain or even give up. After mothering seven children, outliving three of them, losing a husband, and enduring decades of physical labor, she still has a smile on her face.

"I would go to the field and work till dinner, then come home to fix dinner, then I would go back out to the field and work again until supper", Pearl tells us.

But Pearl's daughter, Anno, says complaining is the last thing you'll ever hear her mother do.

"She's taught us to work hard and to get up every morning and think about living. She's never thought about dying", says Anno.

My grandfather ate nothing but red meat, drank moonshine, smoked and chewed tobacco (often at the same time) and lived to 96.

It is all in the genes and has alot to do with the length of your telemere.

Diet and exercise can help you live longer but there really isn't alot more you can do if you want to live to 100+..... if it isn't in your genes it isn't going to happen.
