    and he lived to be 94!

    I've heard this anecdote several times, and wonder to myself if there is anything to it.

    According to "legend" the whiskey tasted more like rocket fuel, and was only taken once in the morning before eating anything.

    Does anyone subscribe to this or know of any similar examples?

    You need to find out what percentage of those who did this lived up to 94.

    And in what health condition. It is no fun to be 94 and in bad health.

    ^^78% of people living to the age of 94 reported taking a shot of whiskey every morning.

    Of these, 89% were in excellent health, 5% were in good health, and 6% were in fair health.
