The world's oldest living person has some beef with a new study that claims that bacon could cause cancer.

Susannah Mushatt Jones, 116, says it'll be when pigs fly that she stops eating bacon.

Jones was named the world's oldest person this past July.

The World Health Organization recently released a report saying eating processed meat like hot dogs, ham and bacon raises the risk of colon cancer and that consuming other red meats “probably” raises the risk as well.

When she's asked about her secret to longevity, she says bacon!

So the Brooklyn centenarian,  seems to be an example as to why the study may not be true for everyone.

As she says, bacon makes everything better.
