…in the news is another 70-year-old who seems to have found the secret to eternal youth, only hers doesn’t imply using growth hormones and testosterone. Annette Larkins doesn’t look a day over 40, thanks to the diet and lifestyle she maintains. She looks so young that people mistake her to be the daughter, when she’s out with her husband of 54 years, but I suppose he isn’t complaining.
Mrs. Larkins says the secret to her beauty lies in the raw vegan diet, consisting of organic vegetables, fruits, seeds and nuts grown in her own garden, she calls the ‘fountain of youth’. The woman doesn’t touch anything that has been cooked. And another strange thing she does is collect rainwater, to keep her garden blossoming, but also to drink.

I saw online that she doesn’t remember much about where she grew up. So, I might like to see her birth certificate. But if she has grown children, this may very well be true. In which case, genetics has a lot to do with it. If you have good genes that keep you healthy and allows for your skin and body to not look aged, that will do it. Most women age because of sun damage or other lifestyle choices. Sure, diet seems to play a part. But, probably not the “fountain of youth” she suggests.
