102 Year-Old Woman Credits Beer for Her Longevity
Happy Hour, happy life. At least that’s the case with 102 year-old Mildred Bowers.
The Mount Pleasant, SC senior, affectionately known by friends and family as “Millie,” sat down with WCSC Live 5 News to talk about her long life and upcoming 103rd birthday. Her advice for reaching such a milestone? “Have a beer, doctor's orders.”
Every afternoon at 4:00, Millie enjoys a cold one at her assisted living facility. In fact, she received her doctor's blessing for the booze after exhibiting consistently good health, both mentally and physically.
"Look, there are people who don't like coffee and people who don't like tea, but I want everyone to drink what they like," she says.
And that's reason enough for me. Bless your heart, Millie. I'll see you at the bar!
