Wanna Live Forever? Super Old Lady Says Bacon Is Key

View Comments

According to a 105-year-old Texas woman, the fountain of youth is not in a trendy face cream or after eating a disgusting bushel of kale.

No, the extremely old woman who has toiled physically her whole life says that she has lived so long because she eats, you guessed it, the best food in the world: bacon.

“I love bacon, I eat it everyday,” Pearl Cantrell told NBC via Huffington Post.  “I don’t feel as old as I am, that’s all I can say.”

Apparently, Oscar Mayer discovered Cantrell’s lifelong love of bacon and sent a Wienermobile to Cantrell’s Texas home to deliver bacon.

Of course, no one has taken into account Cantrell’s incredibly vigorous lifestyle, all for the sake of idolizing bacon.

The moral of the story is that with good genes, a lot of exercise, and less stress than the normal person sitting behind their computer sipping their protein shakes, people can live a long time even if eating bacon is their favorite vice/victory. Let’s clink our strips to that.
