We are always in the search to find out about the secret to eternal life. Now, a centenarian has claimed that the secret to her long life is a daily glass of Guinness, according to The Deccan Chronicle.
Doris Olive Netting has been a regular consumer of the iconic black beverage since her early 30s. She began drinking it after seeing a campaign was launched that hailed the beer for its rich iron content.
Her family home was destroyed during the war, when she was evacuated to Modbury in south Devon and it was after the war that she fell in love with Guinness, her granddaughter explained.
After the war got over, there was a huge marketing campaign to buy Guiness to get your own iron following on from the ration years, and Netting did just that. She had a glass [mini bottle] of Guinness a day for the rest of her life.
That is what she puts her good health and age down to. It turns out that dark Irish beer could be the real elixir of life.
