A woman who turned 104 years old on January 1, 2018, has an interesting habit that CNN may want to pay attention to — she drinks Diet Coke every single day and suggests it is the key to her health. This comes just a few weeks after CNN ran multiple ridiculous segments on how President Donald Trump supposedly drinks 12 Diet Cokes a day.
"I'm surprised that I'm 104," Rowley told WZZM 13. "It just doesn't seem like I should be that old."
"When I was 100, I thought I'd never be 104; I thought I'd pass away by that time but it just didn't happen," Rowley continued. "Then I turn 101, and nothing happens. Here I am 104, and still, nothing happens."
The local ABC affiliate says that Rowley credits her long life to drinking Diet Coke every single day.
"I drink it because I like it," Rowley said. "I'm going shopping Wednesday, and I need more Diet Coke. I have a bag full of empty Diet Coke cans that I need to return to buy more Diet Coke."
On December 11, the same day that an Islamic terrorist attack struck New York City, CNN ran multiple segments on President Trump's alleged Diet Coke habits. One segment, with CNN anchor Alisyn Camerota, took place as news of the terrorist attack was breaking. CNN featured another segment with host Brooke Baldwin later in the day.
