Well, what about the health officials, are they lying?

UPDATE

  1. Love her picture

  2. See what happened after she quit? She died, it is not your lifestyle, it is your genes, so all the haters of bacon and smoking just need to be quite.

  3. I'd like to know if the photo is copyrighted.

  4. [...] smoked for more than 95 years and made headlines when she lit the cigarette from the candle on her 100th birthday cake, died almost at the age of 103. That was just one month short of her 103rd birthday, on July [...]

  5. It’s because she only smoked 5 a day – 11/2 pack a week. Near enough not smoking for a woman with good genes…
