(TheIndependentStar.com) – Everyone wants to live a long and happy life, but the average lifespan is well under 100 years. When someone reaches the goal of living a century or longer, people always want to know what their secret is so they can try it for themselves. When it comes to 111-year-old Dexter Kruger, however, most people probably will pass on the key to his longevity.
The retired cattle rancher, shared in an Australian Broadcasting Corp, that he credits chicken brains with helping him live to a ripe old age. He went on to explain it is only one bite, but it tastes “delicious.”

Kruger’s son said his father’s long life was due to his simple Outback lifestyle, which may be easier for some people to try than eating chicken brains.
The elderly man lived in a nursing home in rural Queensland where the manager said, “his memory [was] amazing” for his age. He was active on social media and authored 12 books in his lifetime, the last being his autobiography.
On May 23, 124 days after his January 13 birthday, Kruger became Australia’s oldest male citizen, and he passed away on July 20, 2021 at age 111 years, 188 days. Rest in peace, Mr. Kruger.
