A Texas grandmother named Pearl Cantrell has been dubbed the “105-year-old bacon woman.” Cantrell has people buzzing as she has credited bacon for helping her live a long life. Huffington Post shared the details on May 7.
Cantrell has said that she loves bacon and eats it every day, sharing that it is her secret for living so long. She has not led an easy life, but she says she does not feel as old as she is. The Texas grandmother's story reached Oscar Mayer, who sent a Wienermobile and delivery of bacon to her home, and she enjoyed a ride around town in the infamous vehicle.
Of course bacon typically does not get credit as a food that will keep one healthy, but Pearl Cantrell's passion for it has people smiling if nothing else. The video of the 105-year-old bacon woman has brought smiles to the faces of everybody viewing the story, and people can't help but hope that Cantrell hangs on to celebrate her 106th birthday as well.
