Centenarian Attributes Longevity To Daily Wine And Activities

There's a natural curiosity about the secrets to living a long life.

So when Violet Ewen of Swindon, England, recently attended her 100th birthday celebration, she was asked about the contributing factors to her own longevity.

She told the Swindon Advertiser, "It's important you always have something to do and it might have something to do with my glass of wine."

Other than some struggles with her hearing and eyesight, the centenarian is largely healthy which she attributes to belonging to clubs, taking vacations, and having wine with dinner.

Ewen isn't the only one who believes a bit of alcohol has helped her longevity; fellow U.K. resident Grace Jones who turned 109 in September has also credited the substance with helping her live longer.

She admitted, "I don't drink but I have a little drop of whisky every night."
