104 Year Old Woman Drinks Diet Coke Daily: A 104-year-old woman who lives much more longer than the average age of a person reveals the secret to live long life. She said that she drink diet coke everyday which makes her live longer. Experts will disagree that the regular consumption of diet soda has long-term health benefits, but that will likely not keep away the centenarian from Michigan from her favorite beverage.
According to the Tech Times, Theresa Rowley, a woman from Grand Rapids, Michigan, celebrated her 104th birthday on Jan. 1. She moved in as a resident of Sentinel Pointe Retirement Community when she was 89 years old, and she is still there 15 years later. She said that she is surprised about her age and she is very happy to live that longer.
“I’m surprised that I’m 104,” said Rowley in an interview with local news network WZZM. “When I was 100, I thought I’d never be 104; I thought I’d pass away by that time but it just didn’t happen,” she said. “Then I turn 101, and nothing happens.” “Here I am 104, and still nothing happens,” Rowley mused. “I drink it because I like it,” she said, adding that she would have to go shopping soon to refill her stock of Diet Coke.
Many will disagree to the fact that they lived a long life because of consuming the diet coke. But it is not a very good reason. Genetics may play a role in influencing longevity, and with Rowley’s father living to 102 years old, it may have contributed more to Rowley’s long life than Diet Coke.
Another study from last year linked artificial sweeteners to increased obesity risk and other health dangers, while a third one claimed that diet soda may trigger diabetes and other metabolic diseases.
