Would this be a dream come true? That eating bacon could lead to a long, healthy life? Well, there's no evidence to back that up...except perhaps, the opinion of one Ruth Benjamin of Illinois. She just celebrated her 109th birthday! When asked for the key to her longevity, she said, "no cigarettes, no liquor, a healthy marriage and a love of bacon."
Her doctors say her longevity is probably more about her overall positive attitude than any love of bacon. But hey...SHE is the one who's 109...and we can dream, can't we?!
