110-Year-Old Man Says a Beer a Day Is the Secret to Longevity


He drinks one every day at 3 p.m.

Nebraska’s oldest man says a beer a day is the reason he’s lived to 110.

Supercentenarian Mark Behrends, who recently celebrated his 110th birthday, claims his daily alcohol consumption is what’s keeping him going, Omaha.com reports.

“He always told everybody the reason he has lived so long is drinking one can of beer, every day at 3 p.m.,” his daughter Lois Bassinger told Omaha.com.

Behrends might be onto something. In a study published in 2010, University of Texas-Austin researchers indicated that moderate drinkers have a lower mortality risk than non-drinkers and heavy drinkers. The oldest person ever, Jeanne Calment, died at 122 and did not consume hard alcohol, but occasionally had a glass of wine at lunch.
