This 110-Year-Old Woman Credits Her Long Life To A Surprising Daily Habit
Mississippi native Agnes Fenton turned 110 last Saturday and up until she was 105, she drank three beers and a shot of whiskey every day.
Speaking back in 2010, Agnes said that since 1943, she used to drink "three cans of Miller High Life a day and a shot of good booze at 5 p.m" and in case you're wondering, Agnes puts Johnnie Walker Blue in the "good booze" category.
However, Agnes' appetite has deteriorated in recent years and when she turned 105, doctors recommended she abstain from alcohol.
Speaking about his patient, the 110-year-old's physician, Kenneth Wasserman, said: “The few things she’s had wrong with her have disappeared in ways they should not have.
"Her health has been phenomenal. … She’s completely, thoroughly amazing".
Agnes has a strong faith and when speaking to NorthJersey.com recently she said: “When I was 100 years old, I went to the mirror to thank God that I was still here. And I thank him every morning".
