105-Year-Old Says Bacon is the Secret to a Long Life

When we think of a 105-year-old frail woman named Pearl, we don’t necessarily think of chowing down on bacon. But that’s exactly what the Texas woman credits for her longevity.

Pearl Cantrell was recently asked by KRBC what the secret to her long life is and she revealed it’s the crispy, sizzling delight that has kept her around for this long.

“I love bacon, I eat it everyday,” she said. “I don’t feel as old as I am.”

The mother of seven still has a lot of life left in her. For her 105th birthday, Cantrell partied with 200 guests for three whole days. And yes, she still dances.

Watch the video above to see how Cantrell’s claim might have some credibility to it, after all. Not that we would ever try to refute an excuse to eat more bacon.
