Dr Pepper Keeps Woman Alive For 104 Years

A 104-year-old woman in America has put her longevity down to drinking Dr Pepper. And before Obamacare that was the only doctor she could get.

You know the phrase that goes with Dr Pepper, "what's the worst that can happen", well, it turned out the worst is to live to 104-years-old. Yep, that makes sense.

She said: "Well at 103 I didn’t think I’d make it, but I’m still perking along." That must be the thing about each birthday when you're that old, you must assume it's your last one. Like when you're playing a computer game and going for a high score, you know you aren't going to be scoring like this again. She's on a run at this chalking up years lark.

Elizabeth Sullivan said: "People try to give me coffee for breakfast." Just coffee? I'm in my 30s and I need a Red Bull to get going. If I make it to 104 I assume I'll been speed and a 9-volt battery up the tradesmans to get the say started.

She said about her Dr Pepper habit: "I started drinking them about 40 years ago. Three a day. Every doctor that sees me says they’ll kill you, but they die and I don’t." Wow. Way to rub it in. I bet she turns up to their funerals laughing and opening cans of the stuff and pouring it into the open casket.

These news stories always come out where someone lives to a ripe old age and they put it down to the whisky drinking, the smoking, the long sting of hookers. Meanwhile I'm trying to avoid red meat, alcohol and fun. I might not live to 104 years old but it sure feels like it.

She even got a gift basket straight from the CEO of Dr. Pepper Snapple Group, Larry Young. A gift basket? She should get a lifetime supply. Which works out to... a gift basket.
