Cubans Onto Something
Apparently, Cuba has an unusually large number of people who have reached 100 years of age. Their secret? Coffee, cigars, and sex.
Well, duh. And you thought they were exceedingly healthy from their numerous attempts to swim to Florida.
Cuba's high number of centenarians say their longevity is down to laying off alcohol, but indulging in coffee, cigars and sex.
The findings are the result of a study that looked into the lives of 54 out of the more than 100 centenarians who live in Villa Clara province.
More than 60% of them had parents who also lived to be over 100.
Cuba, with a population of 11.2 million, has about 3,000 people who have lived for more than a century.
I have the coffee part down. And I'm totally trying to have way more sex and following it up each time with a slow, soothing cigar. Once I get that down, I'll be the picture of health.
