According to a Huffington Post report, Elizabeth Sullivan drinks three cans of the sugary beverage a day, and credits it for her long life. She even drinks the beverage in the morning.

The HuffPo article reported that for her 104th birthday, Sullivan received a Dr Pepper can-shaped cake and plenty of the soda, along with a gift basket from Dr Pepper Snapple Group CEO Larry Young.

The retired math teacher told local news station CBSDFW that doctors have told her the drink would kill her, but that “they die and I don’t.”
