This 105-Year-Old Beat COVID. She Credits Gin-Soaked Raisins.

Ask Lucia DeClerck how she has lived to be 105, and she is quick with an answer.

“Prayer. Prayer. Prayer,” she offers. “One step at a time. No junk food.”

But surviving the coronavirus, she said, also may have had something to do with another staple: the nine gin-soaked golden raisins she has eaten each morning for most of her life.

“Fill a jar,” she explained. “Nine raisins a day after it sits for nine days.”

Her children and grandchildren recall the ritual as just one of DeClerck’s endearing lifelong habits, like drinking aloe juice straight from the container and brushing her teeth with baking soda. (That worked, too: She did not have a cavity until she was 99, relatives said.)This 105-Year-Old Beat COVID. She Credits Gin-Soaked Raisins.

Absolutely, if it worked well for her so well! v

That means the centenarian has survived two pandemics. She was just two years old, living in Hawaii, when the Spanish flu began, The New York Times reports. DeClerck has also survived two world wars, and has lived through the deaths of three husbands and the death of one of her three sons.

As for the few guys I know, I miss the days when we didn't drink bottled water, but bottles of gin and worry about the state of our red blushed skin! grinning
