110-Year-Old Says Secret To Long Life Is 3 Beers A Day…And A Shot Of Whiskey2
When we see senior citizens who live far longer than most of us, we expect that this person has been a picture of perfect health. We don’t expect that they eat a lot of bad food or consume too much alcohol. But Agnes Fenton seems to defy this myth with her latest accomplishment, and it’s unbelievable.
The 110-year old woman,born in 1905, says that her birthday isn’t a very big deal. But for the rest of us, it’s amazing, as she is now part of an exclusive “supercentenarian” club, according to the North Jersey Media Group.
Speaking with ABC News, the woman, who has no children, says that her only health issue has been a tumor she had back in the mid-1940s. She says that the secret to her health and long life is that she has drank three beers per day and a shot glass of whiskey to go with it.
Her doctors are astonished, but there isn’t much that they can say to explain what she has been able to do. Agnes has achieved something that most of us can only dream about, so people are working hard to find out why she was able to live for so long.
Ironically, Agnes’ commitment to drinking a little each day may have a point. Researchers say that wine and beer can reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease.

Dr. Kenneth Wasserman, Agnes’ doctor, has no idea how the woman has been able to live for as long as she has.

“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,” Doctor Wasserman said.
Dr Wasserman also says that Agnes has good hearing and eye sight and can read and watch the news.
“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,” Fenton said. “He gave me a long life and a good life, and I have nothing to complain about. … You’ve got to have God in your life. Without God, you’ve got nothing.”
