Golden years

Woman's Own - - COLUMNIST -

A bril­liant web­site called A Place For Mom trawled in­ter­views with 100 peo­ple over 100 for their tips on longevity. These folk were born in a time be­fore elec­tric light, telly, phones and cars were the norm and sur­vived two world wars. Their rea­sons for be­ing such punchy pen­sion­ers var­ied from whisky in a morn­ing cuppa, choco­late, cig­gies and avoid­ing mar­riage and kids. Tellingly, only 25% of them said they owed their longevity to be­ing healthy, while 29% cred­ited it to be­ing happy. Smile, folks!

Could choco­late be the se­cret to a long life?
