A GREAT-great grandmother has credited her long life to regularly eating McDonald’s Big Macs after church.
Dorothy Nedd, from South Philadelphia in Pennsylvania, has just celebrated her 106th birthday.
Dorothy’s granddaughter Zulema told reporters Christianity and McDonald’s had long been the mainstays of Dorothy’s life.
She told FOX 29 News: “Grandma always used to take me to church.
“And then after church, we would sometimes go to McDonald’s and my grandma got a Big Mac.
“She was getting Big Macs for a long time.”
Dorothy always loved having family around her, with nine great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild.
But sadly she has not been able to see them in the past couple of years.
Zulema said: “Our family would come over every Friday until the pandemic happened.
“We’re no longer doing that, so it’s just FaceTime, and they miss her, but nobody wants to jeopardise her”.
Another long-liver, 106-year-old Mary Nicholson, from St Helen’s, Merseyside, claimed last year drinking full fat milk, cream and butter, as well as enjoying a “tipple of whisky at night”.
The pensioner survived two world wars plus three flu pandemics and celebrated her birthday by beating Covid-19 for a second time.
