A 110-old woman from the US state of New Jersey has claimed that the secret of his longevity is regular consumption of alcoholic beverages.
Agnes Fenton who celebrated his 110th birthday on August 3, told that every day over the past 70 years she drank three glasses of beer and a cup of whiskey.
It is said that African-American woman has no serious health problems, besides she has good vision and hearing. A few decades ago, doctors diagnosed her a benign tumor, and for its resorption they recommended to drink beer, what Fenton was doing until recently. However, last few years, doctors asked her to stop drinking alcohol as the need in food reduced significantly with the passing of years.
According to Buzzfeed, among the favorite dishes of Fenton are chicken wings, sweet potatoes and green beans. The American said that she got used to pray and sleep for a long time. She also likes to read newspapers, listen to the radio and communicate with friends.
Due to her age and unusually good health Fenton has become a subject of interest of scientists from the New England Centenarian Study, an organization that studies the characteristics of people with the age over 100 years. During the last five years the woman has been involved in gerontological research.
Buzzfeed adds that among the 7 billion people living on Earth, only about 600 (one of the ten million) live up to 110 years.
