Based on recent reports, 116-year-old Susannah Mushatt Jones is world’s largest bacon consumer. The woman indulges in all kinds of unhealthy products and yet, she is in a better condition than most teenagers, doctors say.
Many people wonder what products they should consume to prolong their lives or to ward off certain affections. Doctors and nutrition experts recommend people to stay away from dreadful fast food products and fats and yet, a woman in Brooklyn, New York comes to contradict all doctors’ beliefs.
The 116-year-old woman east bacon and eggs every morning and her daily regime contains more than one portion of meat per day. You would expect her to suffer from Type 2 diabetes and coronary diseases and yet, Susannah Mushatt Jones needs no special medical treatments. Doctors have all agreed she is in a perfect physical condition, in spite of the products she eats.
According to her relatives, the woman has started her highly caloric regime approximately 30 years ago when she was placed in a public housing facility. Coupled with countless hours of sleep, this daily regime has worked wonders on Susannah because she rarely needs medical investigations.
The 116-year-old woman sees her physician three times a year as part of her medical routine, but she rarely needs special care. As a matter of fact, the woman takes only two medicines per day and these are for her blindness, which she acquired 15 years ago.
Susannah Mushatt Jones used to work as a security patrol; hence her need to consume highly caloric meals. Yet, medical experts think this regime is not for everyone and people should think twice before following the same diet.
Scientific papers have constantly stressed the fact that bacon and eggs is a very heavy meal and it should, therefore, only be consumed by people who carry out intense physical activities throughout the day. So far, scientists have not been able to find a significant association between bacon consumption and life longevity, which confirms that Jones’ diet is not appropriate for all people.
