If you want to live a long and healthy life then perhaps you should consider eliminating junk foods from your diet.
This was the advice from Alfred Liverpool who celebrated his one-hundredth birthday on June 30.
According to the new centenarian, consuming fresh foods and fruits, and avoiding junk food is his secret to longevity. He also noted that exercise played a significant role in this milestone.
“I wake up at 7am every day, and exercise by either walking the community or using the spin bike. I spend the rest of the day watching games shows, westerns, news or playing lotto.”
Moreover, he urged young people to “listen to your parents and believe in God so you can stay on the straight path.”
Liverpool fathered two daughters and three sons. He is also a grandfather of eleven and a great-grandfather.
Speaking further on the celebration of his birth, the elderly man spoke of the successes of his kin noting that “family always comes first”.
Liverpool was visited by Nyiida Andrews, Inspector I of the Division of Ageing at the Ministry of Social Development and Family Services (MSDFS).
Andrews presented him with his Certificate of Honour and Achievement, a birthday cake sponsored by the Kiss Baking Company and a fruit hamper sponsored by NAMDEVCO.
The Ministry ended by encouraging family members and loved ones, Members of Parliament, local government representatives, friends, and neighbours to register centenarians for the National Centenarian Programme.
