95 year old downhill skier starts the day on five slices

This 95 year old Finnish dude not only ski's every weekend but he also sails on occasion and plays tennis three times a week. As for what's fuelling this guy into old age:

 "If anyone eats unhealthily, it's me," he says. "In my entire life, I haven't eaten anything green." Instead, he favours "lots of sugar and butter", and a hearty breakfast: "In the morning, always five slices of traditional sweet Finnish bread, and tea."
He is a probably a rare outlier and not an example to follow. Nevertheless, the nonagenarian does serve as a useful reminder for people overly caught up in optimising their diets.
