A Woman's Secret to Living to 100 Includes Diet and Exercise

Source: Whittier Daily News (Summary by NIM)

Nowadays it's not uncommon for people to live longer than in generations before. Thanks to new developments in health care and new philosophies to living, many more people are enjoying good health far into their eighties and some into their nineties (my Polish Grandmother is 94 and can still put up a fight). And then, we have those lucky few people who make it all the way into their hundreds without even batting an eyelash! Can you even imagine all they have seen and done?

So long as we are in good health and are enjoying life, why not live it to it's fullest for as long as possible. Well, that's exactly what California native Maria Suarez is doing! Born in July, 1910, Suarez has just celebrated her 100th Birthday this month and is proud to say she's all natural - takes no medication and just enjoys life!

Suarez does not hesitate to give away her secret to longevity - "Stay active and eat right," she says. And don't forget a sprinkling of good faith - "faith is very important to a good life" she has said. Some of her pastimes have included traveling, swimming, camping, the outdoors, and gardening, where she grows her own vegetables. Now that is what I call a good life!
