Pig Out: 105-Year-Old Woman Says Bacon Is Key To Long Life

Well it certainly seems to have worked for her!

A 105-year-old woman has revealed that her secret to good health is a rasher or two of bacon every day.

Pearl Cantrell from Texas said that she would eat the food with each meal and believes it is the reason behind her long life.


Pearl eats bacon every day apparently.

She told US television network KRBC: “I love bacon, I could eat it for every meal, and I do!

“I want other people to eat bacon and I tell them to… I don’t feel as old as I am – that’s all I can say,” she added.


She has outlived three of her seven children.

Bacon butty for lunch then so!
