Woman, 105, credits bacon for long life


A 105-year-old Texas woman who worked a life of physical labour says eating bacon is the main reason she’s lived so long.

Pearl Cantrell ? who’s outlived three of her seven children ? eats the pork treat for "every meal" and credits it for her longevity.

She told US TV network KRBC, "I love bacon; I could eat it for every meal, and I do!

"I would go to the field and work till dinner, then come home to fix dinner, then I would go back out to the field and work again until supper."
