When people ask 100-year-old Forrest Lunsway and 93-year-old Rose Pollard how they have managed to stay healthy and on their feet for so long, they generally recommend things that some doctors may disagree with - whiskey, wine and fried food, according to The Daily Mail.
"My favorite food is fried food. Something you can get a chunk of. Cut a bite off a piece of meat, that’s what I like.," he told the publication.
Lunsway also says that his lifetime of being outdoors has helped him lead a long life.
Born in 1911, he originally worked as an animal trapper and sold their furs. Then, he moved to California and became a pipe welder.
He and Pollard were recently married, making them the oldest newlyweds in the world, and are eager to get on with their retirement living. They have already made a list of goals - including kayaking in Alaska and walking along the coast of California. They regularly go to ballroom dancing classes as well.
While Lunsway and Pollard may be making the most of their independent living, their lifetime of physical activity may have helped. Researchers have found that lifestyle may have a huge impact on longevity - perhaps more than genetic factors.
