World’s Oldest Woman Swears By Bacon

World’s Oldest Woman Swears By Bacon

There is a very slim chance that your personal trainer or nutritionist will tell you to be sure and include bacon as part of a balanced healthy diet. However, that is exactly what the world’s oldest woman, Susannah Jones, is saying.
 

World’s Oldest Woman Swears by Bacon

 
Susannah Mushatt Jones, 116, was named by the Guinness World Records as the ‘World’s Oldest Woman’ in July. With a daily breakfast routine that consists of eggs, bacon and grits, Jones proudly displays a kitchen sign that reads, “Bacon makes everything better.” That, she believes, along with “lots of sleep” has positively contributed to her long and happy life. According to her, “I never drink or smoke. I surround myself with love and positive energy. That’s the key to long life and happiness.”

The fact that Jones eats bacon every day came as quite a surprise to many, especially considering the World Health Organization’s recent claim that cancer can be caused by processed meats. While Jones claims that “lots of sleep” is the reason for her longevity, her family claims that her generosity to others and love of family are the real reasons.
 
World Oldest Person Susannah Mushatt Jones
 
Born on July 6, 1899, near Montgomery, Virginia in a small farm town, she was one of 11 children born to a cotton sharecropper and his wife Mary Mushatt. After attending a school for black girls, she graduated in 1922 and picked crops full time for her family.
 
In 1923, Jones left Virginia for New Jersey and work as a nanny, before eventually making her way to New York. There, she worked for wealthy families as a live-in child care provider and housekeeper for about $7 per week. While her original dream had been to become a teacher, and she had even been accepted into the Tuskegee Institute’s Teacher’s Program, her family had been unable to afford the tuition to send her.
 
Susannah Jones’ niece, Lois Judge, told the Daily Record that, “She adored kids.” Even though Jones was only married for a few years and never had any children. Adored by her 100 nieces and nephews as “T”, Jones was an active member of her local “tenant patrol team” for more than 30 years and received tribute from the New York Housing Authority and New York mayor Michael Bloomberg. It was NY Mayor Bloomberg who wished Jones, “good health and great happiness.”
 

 
Jones believes that, in addition to her love of bacon, her lack of vices is one of the greatest contributing factors to her longevity. Although she is now hard of hearing and blind, she only needs 2 medications per day and is not bed ridden. Whether or not it is due to her pension for bacon, Jones has now outlived the Guinness World Records’ oldest woman, Frenchwoman Jeanne Calment, who passed away at a ripe old age of 122 years and 164 days.
