A 105-year-old Texas woman has earned a place in almost all headlines by revealing the most unlikely secret to her long life.
Strangely, her key to longevity is bacon. Yes, you read it right; 105-year-old Pearl Cantrell loves to eat bacon and feasts on it almost every day. Her story, for sure, will be a subject of research for most health scientists.
Pearl Cantrell, who's mostly referred to as the '105-year-old bacon woman', said in an interview with a local NBC station, "I love bacon and I eat it everyday. I don't feel as old as I am, that's all I can say."
Resident of Central Texas, Cantrell, a mother of seven, has outlived three of her kids, as well as her husband. Her recent 105th birthday bash was a three-day affair that included more than 200 guests.
I just had 6 pieces of bacon and one egg. I feel healthier already.
That egg will be your undoing........
My grandmother lived to be 100 and she cooked almost everything in bacon grease, when she wasn’t using lard, that is.
That picture is so beautiful...
Bacon = Happiness.
Happiness = Long Life.
Works for me.
I am so totally doing that. I might do it tonight.
Yep, makes a fine dinner as well. Enjoy!
I think the family will have BLT’s with a basil mayonnaise tonight...
