One would think that living for many years comes from living a healthy lifestyle, with a very well balanced diet and regular physical activity to maintain ones shape. However, although this should not be ruled out at all, the world's longest-living people have admitted that alcohol is part of their daily diet and that, for them, it has helped them to live for such a long time.
Grace Jones is now the UK's tenth-longest living person at 110 and has confessed that a small sip of whisky every night has been her most trusted secret to living for so long. "I never suffer from heartburn during the night and it's the only thing I drink", says Mrs. Jones, who has been practising this for 60 years. "Whisky is very good for your health. I started with the night sip when I turned 50 and I have not stopped for 60 years, and I do not intend to do it. The doctor told me to continue taking it because it is good for the heart", confesses Jones.
And, certainly, it is not the first time that something like this has happened. We have already heard of a 102-year-old woman who credits beer for her longevity. We also have another woman over 100 who claimed that 6 gin & tonics a day have done her well while a 107-year-old Spanish wine producer claims that his long age is due to the benefits of wine he consumes daily.
Jones celebrated his birthday last September with his 78-year-old daughter and enjoyed pleasant company, food, drinks and, of course, his mythical drink of whisky. She was born on September 16, 1906 in Liverpool, in the United Kingdom, and has already received seven letters from the Queen of England. And, most likely, it will probably not be the last.
