STATES CHRONICLE – Judging by the habits of world’s oldest woman, 116-yeard-old Susannah Mushatt Jones, we may safely assume that bacon can prolong lives. The woman consumes bacon, meat and other unhealthy products every day and yet is healthier than most young people today.
Susannah Mushatt Jones, the 116-year-old resident from Brooklyn, New York has recently got the media’s attention due to her advanced age. People from all over the U.S. territory have gathered to celebrate the woman’s anniversary and hopefully, to find the secret behind her longevity.
Much to everyone’s surprise, jones is not a fan of healthy diets. On the contrary, she has been a consumer of unhealthy products all her life and yet, is in a very good condition. According to her niece, Lois Judge, the 116-year-old woman east bacon and eggs every morning. Moreover, she consumes meat almost three times a day and, yet, she never had major health issues.
Jones went blind 15 years ago, when she was still working as a security patrol. She was later moved to a public housing complex where she started the bacon-based diet that she carefully follows every day. In addition to bacon and eggs, Jones also thinks sleep can help prolong lives.
The woman only takes two medicines per day, according to her family members and she rarely needs to get medical checkups. Her family takes her to the doctor three times a year. Medical investigations have always had good results because the woman is not suffering from a special condition.
In spite of Jones’ good conditions, scientists think people should think twice before following the bacon-based diet. According to Dr. Thomas Perls from the Boston Medical Center, the woman’s genes most certainly helped her lead a long existence.
Perls has explained that bacon remains one of the most harmful ingredients, so people should not rush to add it to their daily regimes because of Jones’ example. There is no scientific data suggesting people have to eat bacon on a daily basis to prolong their lives, Perls has concluded.
