One Supercentenarian Credited Her Long Life To This Beer

For Agnes Fenton, living a long life turned out to be remarkably easy. According to The Independent, she was full of gratitude for everything she'd seen and didn't take anything for granted. It's important to mention at this point that crossing the 110-year mark is not easy. Per Robert Young, a researcher and gerontology consultant, only a few people around the world have managed to become supercentenarians. Everyone has a different story. For example, a Jamaican woman, Violet Brown, said that she would consume only small meals throughout her day and stay away from pork and chicken (via Insider).

Researchers were definitely curious about Fenton's life and wanted to figure out how she had managed to beat the odds for so many years. When she hit 105, she told journalists that one of her secrets was drinking beer every single day for over 70 years. Personally, she also couldn't help but attribute her long life to her faith. "He gave me a long life and a good life, and I have nothing to complain about," she said.

She loved Miller High Life

According to a piece by New York Daily News, Agnes Fenton said that sipping on Miller High Life beer and a glass of whiskey helped her survive. She was drinking regularly for more than 70 years. A doctor gave her interesting advice when she went for a check-up a long time ago. "Agnes, you must drink three Miller High Lifes a day," he basically said.

She didn't find anything wrong with this advice and decide to give it a shot. It somehow worked for her. However, in her later years, she had to stop drinking completely. Her caregivers were basically worried about her health and said that it was not possible for her to continue drinking because she couldn't eat much at that point. Fenton died in 2017 at the age of 112. Per North Jersey, she was really happy with the life she'd lived.
