'Modest' alcohol consumption could help you live longer


It was concluded that those who lived healthier lifestyles tended to live longer than those who did not. Having a few cocktails on a regular basis. Before you get too excited, a research study recently determined that drinking alcohol helps more than exercise in allowing people to live beyond 90 years old. You don't need to tell me twice.

Moderate drinking, however, was not the only activity reported by The 90+ Study that had a positive impact on longevity.

This study began in 2003 and continues up till this point. Dr Kawas said, 'I nearly think we should stop doing research and just start using our bodies and brains more.

People who drank the equivalent of two glasses of beer or wine were 18 percent less likely to die prematurely.

Interestingly, weight also plays a factor in longevity - but not in the way you'd imagine. Those who exercised 15 to 45 minutes a day cut their risk by a significant, but lessor 11 per cent. Plus, all of grandpa's stories about the war might be a bit more elaborate and honest with the help of another glass of wine.

Interestingly, people who were slightly overweight (not obese) lowered their risk of early death by 3%, compared to people who were normal - slightly underweight.

According to Claudia Kawas, the head researcher of the study and a neurologist by profession, "I do firmly believe that modest drinking improves longevity". I really like this person, you guys.

Subjects who kept busy with a daily hobby two hours a day were 21% less likely to die early, while those who drank two cups of coffee a day cut that risk by 10%.
