I was compelled by the title of the article below, and knew before I clicked on it, that it had to be about a Texan. Dr. Pepper is the unofficial, official NA beverage of Texas. My family certainly drank it’s share, and even swears by it’s “medicinal purposes”. The medicine woman in me, has even recommended it as an alternative to Correctol. I swear by it, people! What? Everybody poops.
Elizabeth Sullivan: Dr Pepper 3 Times a Day Is 104-Year-Old’s Secret
Elizabeth Sullivan credits her 104 years on earth to Dr Pepper and not her doctors. She says she drinks three cans of Dr Pepper per day.
Sullivan, a former teacher from Forth Worth, Texas, said she doesn’t take the advice of real medical doctors.
I personally acknowledge that soda is terrible for you, so please realize that this post is tongue in cheek.
That being said, I had four grandparents with grease and Dr.Pepper slathered diets, who all lived until they were almost 90. Unlike most of my generation, they never stopped working with their hands or being active (well past retirement). Sure they indulged in some sausage and sodas, but they were never couch potatoes.
Along with the sodas and sausages, was an array of fresh vegetables that they’d toiled in their gardens to grow.
All things in moderation, and to Elizabeth Sullivan, I raise an ice cold Dr. Pepper in cheers.
“When you live to be 104 and still can talk to nice people, you deserve some Dr Pepper, but I never expected this,” Sullivan told CBS.
