So much has been said about the harmful effects of consuming sodas and softdrinks frequently, given the high sugar content. But when someone who managed to reach the ripe old age of 77 admits that she drank the sugary beverage everyday, for the past 60 years, well, it may lead you to rethink your beliefs.

Jackie Page from Carshalton, Surrey in the UK discloses that she drinks up to four cans of Pepsi daily, ever since had her first can way back in 1954. She was just 13 years old then.

“Some people might think it’s weird, but I don’t care. I’ve been drinking it every single day since 1954,” Jackie explains.

“I don’t call it an addiction. It’s just something I like, and I can’t help it if I don’t like anything else.

“I don’t like it from a bottle, only from a can. I like to drink Pepsi fresh straight from the can, and it has to be cold.

“While my kids were young, they knew not to take mum’s Pepsi out of the fridge.

“We would tell them it was bad for you, so they wouldn’t drink it, but as they have all seen how healthy I am and how long I have lived I can’t really talk now.

“Whether I am a caffeine addict or not I don’t know, but I am 77 years old and I have survived so far.

“I have one as soon as I wake up each day straight from the fridge. It’s like when someone says they want to drink a lovely cup of tea first thing in the morning, I drink up a lovely can of Pepsi.”

So if you do the math, that’s six decades of drinking Pepsi, accumulating around 93,440 cans. If you count the sugar content of each can, that amounts to almost 3,000 kilograms of sugar – or 3 million sugar cubes.

When she was growing up, Jackie refused to drink water, milk, or lemonade.

She never liked them and also claims that the smell of coffee or tea alone makes her sick.

“I have never drank water – and even if I was dying [of thirst] no way would I.”

Jackie claims this didn’t have any bad effects on her health.

“They say Pepsi is bad for your teeth, but I am a war time baby and there’s not many of us without rotten teeth, so I wouldn’t know.

“We didn’t have much toothpaste during the war because it was rationed. I wouldn’t go to the dentist when I was a kid either. I was too scared.

“I don’t think Pepsi has affected my health either. I have always been really, really slim until about five years ago but I think that’s because I don’t do much now. I am not as active as I was.

“Right up until I was 60, I was still doing line dancing and I was pretty fit, but I can’t get out to do that now.

“Nowadays people say you shouldn’t drink Pepsi, but I say it’s my choice what I want to drink.

“I just know what I like, and I won’t settle for anything else.”

She prefers her Pepsi from the can, as she believes it tastes better that way, but she will not refuse Pepsi in a glass bottle either. However, she doesn’t really like drinking from a plastic bottle.
