110-Year-Old Woman Thanks Beer, Whiskey, and God for Long Life

Agnes Fenton celebrated her 110th birthday on Saturday. The supercentenarian credits her longevity to three things: God, at her home in New Jersey, and Miller High Life.

Five years ago on her 105th birthday, Fenton told ABC News she had enjoyed a beer and whiskey every day for decades. It all started 70 years ago when a doctor told Fenton her only serious health problem was a benign tumor.

Fenton says the doctor gave her one piece of advice before she went home: "He said, 'Agnes, you must drink three Miller High Lifes a day.'" And she did. Only recently did her caregivers remove alcohol from her diet, The Record reports.

Above all, Fenton is thankful to God for her long life.

"Ain't no secret, just keep in touch with God and do the right thing," Agnes Fenton told ABC 7.

"When I was 100 years old, I went to the mirror to thank God that I was still here. And I thank him every morning," she said. "He gave me a long life and a good life, and I have nothing to complain about."
